Two large copper pots were delivered to the Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk at the weekend.

The new pots will be used to expand the distilling of whiskey at the Carrick Road site.

It is expected that the new pots will be installed very soon.

The former Harp Lager/Great Northern Brewery site was acquired by former Cooley Distillery boss John Teeling four years ago this month.

He outlined his plans at the time to distill whiskey for the third-party market, including private label and bulk sectors, as well as the emerging craft distillery sector.

Last October the distillery secured an additional €5 million in funding through the employment and investment incentive tax relief scheme (EIIS), bringing to €12.5 million the amount of funding secured by the venture to date under the scheme.

Whiskey production has been busy since day one with a large quantity being matured in oak barrels in a bonded warehouse in Greenore, as well as on site.

The distillery, which has a capacity to distil the equivalent of 42 million bottles of whiskey a year, recently released its own whiskey brand called Burke’s which is now available to purchase from a number of locations, including Callan’s Off Licence in Park Street.
