About Dublin Liberties Distillery
Construction work has begun at the Dublin Liberties Distillery site on Old Mill Street to create a new €15m visitor centre and distillery which will create 19 permanent jobs once commissioned.
SSA Architects will oversee design and construction of the new distillery and visitor centre. The Old Mill Street building, a former mill and tannery, will be redeveloped to retain the original historical architecture, preserving the original frontage of the building. During construction, 50 people will be employed on the project.
SSA director Shane Santry said: “The building is an important piece of the industrial historical fabric of The Liberties, having formerly been a mill and tannery. While there is no conservation order on the building we felt that it was important to conserve the history and spirit of the Liberties, while creating a feature that really stands out. Walking through the doors of the new distillery and visitor centre, we want people to get a real sense of what has come before, which will make the experience very special.”
