TULLAMORE DEW HERITAGE CENTRE
Petit Futé's opinion on TULLAMORE DEW HERITAGE CENTRE
Located on the banks of the Grand Canal, the former distillery of the Irish Whiskey Tullamore Dew is today a museum dedicated to the history of the city and to the birth of this world-renowned spirits. The old warehouse dating from the nineteenth century has been impeccably restored and provides a superb setting to discover the city's history.
The first floor is dedicated to Tullamore's history from its origins. A replica of the Book of Durrow, older than the Book of Kells, reminds us that the county of Offaly was an important monastic center in the early hours of Christianity in Ireland. Another section presents the history of the Grand Canal which, by connecting Tullamore to the Irish and global export-export network, has allowed the economic boom. It was by this means of water that distillery brought barrels of malt from Guinness to Dublin. The story of whiskey is told on the second floor. In 1947, he was joined by a second spirit: the Irish Mist liqueur, created according to an ancient Irish recipe that has been revived. Don't miss to see the small film in the counterpoint of the exhibition, which is found in French version.
The visit will not end without a tasting at the bar on the ground floor. Its wooded tavern atmosphere seduce, as well as its lunch card, which includes a delicious stew stew with, of course, a drop of whiskey in the sauce.
