€10m for Powerscourt Estate whiskey

A planning application to construct a craft distillery and visitor centre on the Powerscourt Estate, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow, is being lodged today.

Powerscourt Distillery co-founders Gerry Ginty and Ashley Gardiner have raised €3m of a targeted €10m investment and are in discussions on a second €5m capital raise. The project will create 30 jobs in construction and 18 full-time jobs once operational.

The plan to refurbish Powerscourt Estate's mill house as a distillery is a joint venture with owners the Slazenger family. Pictured are Mr Ginty and Mr Gardiner with Powerscourt's Sarah Slazenger.
