The Dingle Distillery was launched in 2012 describing itself as an 'artisan' distillery. The inspiration to establish a distillery in Dingle was Oliver Hughes, a founder of the Porterhouse brewing and restaurant group.
The site chosen was the Fitzgerald sawmill in the Milltown district of Dingle, a Gaeltacht (Predominated Irish Gallic Speaking) region in the far southwest of Ireland. The sawmill was converted for whiskey production during 2012, opening on the 29th of November of that year. The new copper whiskey stills were designed by John McDougall. The distillery has been reported to have created 25 jobs and with more anticipated with the launch of the distillery visitors' centre.
Dingle's humid and mildly cool climate is reportedly favourable for whiskey production and maturing however requiring a number of years so Dingle Distillery has yet to bring a whiskey to market. It plans to produce whiskeys called Dingle Gold and Dingle Green. Their projected output of 'artisan' Irish whiskeys is projected to be two casks per day. The Dingle distillery first whiskeys should be available in 2018.
As a promotion to attract investors, Dingle Distillery is offering up five hundred special casks to "Founding Fathers", to be ready in 2018.
The distillery also has a still for the production of gin and vodka
