Irish whiskey has been the fastest growing premium spirit category in the world growing by 140% by volume in the last decade and set to double by 2030. The development of further distilling capacity in Ireland is critical to ensuring future growth. McAllister Distillers are constructing a state of the art craft whiskey and gin Distillery in Ahascragh, county Galway. This eco distillery will be powered by renewable energy and at its core will be a passion and drive for a carbon neutral operation. Scope of work involves the restoration of a beautiful protected old mill complex delivering a world class whiskey experience and hospitality destination inside a working craft distillery in the west of Ireland. Ahascragh will be the brand home of a growing Irish drinks business capturing targeted opportunities in Irish whiskey and gin growth globally with special focus in Asia.
Irish whiskey tourism has also emerged as one of the fastest growing segments of the Irish tourism offering. In 2019 there were over one million visitors to Irish whiskey distilleries across the island of Ireland, generating positive economic returns for rural Ireland.
