The original triple blend Irish whiskey, Tullamore D.E.W. is crafted in the town of Tullamore in County Offaly in Ireland. With over 192 years of history, the DEW or D. E. W. in the name are the initials of the legendary distiller, Daniel Edmund Williams, who worked at the distillery since the age of fifteen! Although the distillery is famous for blends, they also release their own single malt expressions.
The flagship blend, Tullamore D.E.W. Original Irish Whiskey, is made from three types of grain, triple distilled, blended with three Irish whiskeys and triple cask matured. Three must be a lucky number in Tullamore!
Although famous the world over for exquisite blends, the distillery produces a 12 year old and an 18 year old single malt expression.
Tullamore D.E.W. was a favourite of novelist Hunter S. Thompson. He makes frequent mention of it in his letters that make up 'The Proud Highway'.
The distillery is the only one in the world to triple distil three types of whiskey.
The Tullamore distillery was established in 1829, and distilled onsite in the small Irish town of Tullamore for decades until it moved production to Midleton Distillery in County Cork, after being purchased by John Powers & Son. After being sold to William Grant & Sons in 2010, a new distillery was constructed in Tullamore, and opened in 2014. As of 2015, the whiskey sells about 950,000 cases per year – the second best-selling after Jameson.
