Limerick’s proud heritage of distillery – Limerick man returns home to revive a tradition

A LIMERICK man is bringing back the proud tradition of whiskey distillery in the city.

It was more than a century ago when Thomond Gate whiskey closed its operation at Brown’s Quay.

And after a decade of working in the finance and fintech sector in London, Ballyclough man Nick Ryan returned to his home county with a dream of recreating that perfect dram – and in doing so, ensuring Limerick whiskey is put back on the map.

Nick has even bigger plans to open a bonded warehouse, where the art of whiskey creation can be showcased.

“Limerick had a lot of distilleries, the most prominent being one in Thomondgate which traded under a number of names and was owned by a number of companies. It closed in 1919 at Brown’s Quay in Thomondgate. For me, it was something I was passionate about – to revive and restore the prominence of very much a Limerick whiskey,” he explained.
