Distillery Diaries is our new series of short films that explore the construction and progress of Ahascragh Distillery in County Galway. For the first video in the series, we caught up with Project Manager, Liam Loughrey and Main Contractor, Adrian McCormack to discuss phase one of construction and their thoughts on the project.
“I grew up in this village and I know what it’s like. I’ve seen the mill closed down for 60 years now. Everybody is very enthusiastic and they love to see the transformation… You couldn’t think of a better use for the old mill buildings than a whiskey distillery” – Project Manager, Liam Loughrey and Main Contractor, Adrian McCormack.
Construction continues to move forward. With equipment installation beginning over the coming months and the stills arriving in October, we hope to be distilling by the end of 2022.
Stay tuned for more Distillery Diaries.
