The distillery for An Dúlamán was established in 2017 just outside the village of Carrick, Co. Donegal, where the Abhainn Bhuí and Glen rivers flow into Teelin bay at the foot of Sliabh Liag.
At the distillery’s core is our 500 litre hand-beaten copper still from Forsyths of Scotland. Moira named her Méabh (phonetically may–ve) and her name means “she who intoxicates” and sometimes “bringer of great joy”. Méabh has her idiosyncrasies and we have found her at her most benevolent when we distil slowly and at an unusually low ABV.
This is a working artisan distillery and everything is done on site including the hand-bottling. The site accommodates the company’s administration and storage. You are very welcome to visit.Book a Tour
The Ardara Distillery will make Irish whiskey in both Single Malt and iconic Pot Still variants, highly differentiated and reflecting the authentic style in which Donegal whiskey was made in the 19th century. Triple distilled, rich, smoky and peated, the whiskies will share in the folklore of the Donegal Gaeltacht and will be steeped in the often illicit heritage of distilling on the Sliabh Liag peninsula
With construction on the Show Field in Ardara started, we plan for the distillery to be operational in mid 2021. The distillery buildings have been designed by CornerStone Architecture of Donegal and incorporate traditional shapes, forms and materials. The distillery will initially comprise the still house and barrel store and, in a later phase, an expanded visitor centre and relocated An Dúlamán Distillery.
