The 'D.E.W.' in Tullamore D.E.W. comes from the initials of a General Manager at the Tullamore distillery in the later 19th Century, named Daniel E. Williams.
Country of Origin
Daniel E. Williams,the creator of Tullamore D.E.W. A self-made man who worked his way up from a stable boy of the distillery to become the owner: he brought electricity, and motorised automobiles to Tullamore and created a whiskey so distinctive and character-filled, it could only be stamped with his initials D.E.W.
The grandson of Daniel E. Williams, Desmond inherited his grandfather's grit and determination. He followed his innovative footsteps by revolutionising the whiskey industry and introducing Ireland’s first blended whiskey.
After 60 years of waiting in September 2014 Tullamore D.E.W. resumed production in it's ancestral home of Tullamore, Co Offaly. Our new state-of-art distillery will ensure the legacy of our legendary whiskey will live on in the heart of Ireland for the foreseeable future.
To craft a whiskey of exceptional character, you need an exceptional process. At the core of our legendary whiskey making process is the number three. We only use three natural ingredients, three varieties of grain distillations and three different types of maturation casks. This makes Tullamore D.E.W. the worlds only triple distilled, triple blend, triple matured whiskey and yields an award-winning flavour profile of true Irish character.
