Situated in the heart of Ireland in the small town of Kilbeggan in Co. Westmeath, Kilbeggan is Ireland's oldest operating distillery. This location was chosen for good reason, with the three natural ingredients needed to distill superior quality whiskey close by. Located on the Brosna River, it has access to clean water, along with locally grown grains and a ready supply of turf (used for malting) from nearby bogs. A water wheel sits at its center and symbolizes the heart of the distillery, dating back to the 19th century. For generations it has been an iconic feature of the distillery and served as the engine behind its whiskey production.
Kilbeggan® is a unique Irish whiskey. Like most Irish people, Kilbeggan® Irish Whiskey is easy going and approachable but with its own distinctive style.
