Tullamore Dew

Tullamore D.E.W. is the original triple distilled, triple blend whiskey. Known the world over for its smooth and gentle complexity. Tullamore D.E.W. is named after Daniel E. Williams, the man who decided that true craft could only come from the True Character and insisted that his whiskey was made accordingly.

Set in the heart of Ireland, our Old Bonded Warehouse sits on the banks of Tullamore’s Grand Canal. Since 1829, we’ve sent our whiskey out to the world. Nowadays, we invite the world to come to us, as we share the story of how our whiskey got its character.

Step inside our Visitor Centre – housed within our Old Bonded Warehouse – and follow in the footsteps of Daniel E. Williams as he goes from stable boy to distillery manager to creating the whiskey which still bears his initials today.

Discover our state-of-the-art process as you get to intimately know our history, and our whiskey.

SMART Docklands

The Dublin Docklands has unique potential as a Smart City District. Over 40,000 people work in this thriving business district, and it is home to 26,000 thousand residents. There is a high concentration of new buildings and a wide range of connectivity, transport modes, and ‘smart’ assets. It is also home to many of the world’s leading global technology companies, who are ready and eager to make use of a world-class testbed in their backyard.

Recognising the suitability of the Docklands as a Smart City Technology testbed, Dublin City Council (DCC) and Trinity College’s ‘CONNECT’ Centre spearheaded the creation of the ‘Smart Docklands’ initiative.

Its objective is to unite SME’s, residents or local government officials who are facing challenges with technology companies who believe they can solve these challenges. The Smart Docklands initiative connects these groups so that they can come up with innovative solutions, test them and improve them collaboratively.

The Smart Docklands team also facilitates the deployment of prototypes of these solutions in The Docklands area, ensuring that these projects receive any assistance they may need from Dublin City Council.
