The Distillery located on the Kilbeggan river opened in 1757
|Copper Pot Still|
I loved the fact that this site combines a museum, historical buildings, and old distillery equipment with a modern day operation. The site features a functioning water wheel and steam engine. The old pot stills, fermentation vats, and processing rooms are also still on the site. The interior of the structure is primarily wooden and the whole inside of the building had a creaky feel that reminded me of a barn. Considering the fact that portions of the space were used for storage of grains I suppose the barn feeling makes sense.
