Lough Ree Distillery is Longford’s first licensed distillery in over 200 years, having commenced distilling in Lanesborough at the end of July. This marks the first phase in the company’s ambitious plans, with a second phase imminent which involves
construction of a much larger 1500 m2 purpose built production facility and visitor centre, located on the Old Post Office site adjacent to the Bridge and Car Park in Lanesborough.
Our vision is to make the finest, most highly regarded Irish Spirits, here in our home town, Lanesborough. We want to respect the long tradition of Whiskey making, which some say began on the shores of Lough Ree. But we won’t be bound by that tradition. We will be drawing on our considerable marketing, commercial and beverage industry experience to innovate, to create new ideas and experiences that will lead the sector. These products will include:
- Premium Single Cask Whiskey
- Single Pot Still
- Single Malt
- Fruit Spirits
Some call us fastidious others meticulous but we prefer to think of ourselves as driven by quality. The Lough Ree spirits brand will represent the modern, confident Ireland we know and love – grounded in our rich history and culture, looking outward to an exciting world full of opportunities.
