The Old Jameson Distillery is getting a full makeover and we won't have long to wait
Brought to you by Jameson
The Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin is to undergo a very snazzy refurbishment.
Irish Distillers, Ireland’s leading supplier of spirits and wines and producer of the world’s most well-known and successful Irish whiskeys, has this week announced plans for a major redevelopment of the Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield, representing a total investment of €11 million.
This new look Jameson brand home will strengthen Ireland’s growing whiskey tourism industry which currently attracts 350,000 tourists a year.
To facilitate the refurbishment, the Old Jameson Distillery will close on September 1st and will officially reopen in March 2017.
So it won't be closed for that long and for a cost of 1/10th of a Paul Pogba, we reckon this is a very good thing indeed!
Construction work will begin in September and will be led by BRC Imagination Arts; Dublin based Architect firm The O’Toole Partnership and Flynn Management & Contractors with approximately 100 people employed as part of the redevelopment work.
BRC Imagination Arts is one of the world’s leading experience design and production agencies specializing in the creation of next generation brand experiences.
Founded in 1981, past clients of BRC include the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta; the Heineken Experience in Amsterdam and the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.
We are very excited to see what it looks like after the refurbishment. Bring it on!
Keep an eye on JOE.ie on Monday as we announce details of a very special competition in conjunction with the Old Jameson Distillery. You and some friends could be the very last people to tour it before it gets refurbished!
