Slane Castle is the latest must-visit destination for whiskey lovers world-wide with the opening last night of the Slane Distillery and visitors centre. Coopers Marquees were delighted to supply the marquee for the launch, providing a beautifully presented location for the official opening.
Built within the surroundings of the 250-year-old stables and grain stores, the working distillery expects 40,000 visitors per year initially. Following two years of renovations and preparation the distillery is now ready to receive visitors.
The brainchild of Lord Henry Mount Charles and his son, Alex Conynham, its conception was solidified by the acquisition in 2015 of Slane Whiskey by US company Brown Forman, makers of Jack Daniels and other beverages.
An ideal location for the distillery, the Slane Estate will produce the triple casked whiskey, retailing at €33 for a 750ml bottle.
