Best shot Whiskey production starts
The first independent purpose-built distillery for a new whiskey in more than 200 years in Ireland has begun distilling in Dingle, Co Kerry.
The Dingle Whiskey Distillery began production of gin and vodka at the site of the old sawmill in October, and whiskey production has now followed.
It is the latest venture by the Porterhouse Brewing Company, Ireland's largest independent brewery, which pioneered craft brewing here.
The project has been in development for the past three years. For the Dingle community it means the creation of up to 20 jobs at the distillery and at the eventual visitors' centre.
To mark the occasion, the owners of the first 500 casks will be known as the Dingle founding fathers, and they will be able to choose their own bespoke cask.
