Powerscourt Distillery Launches Cask Programme

Invest in 200L cask of the new distillery’s whiskey

The Powerscourt Distillery and Visitor Centre has announced details of a limited-availability cask membership programme.

The distillery and visitor centre, located on the Powerscourt Estate in Enniskerry, began producing Irish whiskey in 2018.

The cask membership programme will be restricted to a membership of 397 200L casks, each one representing a foot of water from the nearby 397ft Powerscourt Waterfall.

Together with cask ownership, other benefits of the programme will include distillery shopping discounts, early access to future limited and special releases, annual samplings and special tasting events. It also includes an exclusive bottling of the otherwise unavailable Powerscourt Distillery Fercullen 16-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey.

Alex Peirce, chief executive of The Powerscourt Distillery, said that the cask programme provides a once-off opportunity to become part of the unfolding story of whiskey distilling on Powerscourt Estate.

“The past few years have seen a lot of careful preparatory work, and we now have a whiskey distillery located in an extraordinary setting, complemented by a world-class visitor centre and facilities, and an onsite maturation warehouse all in the one place,” Peirce stated. “We also have one of Ireland’s most decorated and recognisable distillers, Noel Sweeney, at the helm of our distilling operations.”

Cask members can also avail of accommodation at the five-star Powerscourt Resort Hotel & Spa and access to two on-site championship golf courses.
