Locke's Distillery is the last remaining example of a small pot still whiskey distillery in Ireland believed to be the oldest in the world. It was licensed in 1757 and whiskey production continued until for 200 years until 1957, when the distillery closed its doors. Now open as museum, guided tours follow the process from the grinding of the grain to the casting of the final product. Learn about the lives and the working conditions of the people who worked here and to top it all off, a complimentary tasting of Kilbeggan Irish whiskey!
