The Powerscourt Distillery visitor centre includes six carefully-appointed tasting rooms, a distillery giftshop, café/bar and adjoining maturation facilities. The Distillery is delighted to host tours and meetings, receptions, and private dinners.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Sugarloaf Mountain, nourished by pure Wicklow spring water, and enjoying a mild coastline climate, Powerscourt sets the perfect stage for distilling Irish whiskey.
The Powerscourt Distillery is in the Old Mill House on Powerscourt Estate. Dating back to 1730’s, this building has now been faithfully restored and extended to accommodate both production and visitor centre facilities. An adjacent warehouse for filling and storing casks helps to ensure a fully immersive distillery visitor experience.

Passionate about his work and the production of the very finest of new spirit, Noel has been credited for the release of many international award-winning Irish whiskeys and in 2017 he was inducted into Whisky Magazine’s ‘Hall of Fame’.
