It’s no coincidence that the Visitor Centre is located on the majestic Grand Canal that stretched through the heart of Ireland, from Dublin to the Shannon basin. This played a significant role in the distribution of this whiskey. The distillery had its own canal boat – 55B. Drawn by horses, it would take the seven days to complete a round trip journey to and from Dublin. From Dublin Port the whiskey was shipped around the world.

During the great freeze of 1942, the canal froze over, which delighted the population of Tullamore. One intrepid local by the name of “Egan” was wagered to skate the length of the canal to Dublin, a challenge he duly accepted and returned to collect his prize.
