The Liberties, Dublin City
The Dublin Liberties Distillery is nestled in the heart of Dublin’s historic distilling district called the Liberties. The Liberties is a place where every stone tells a story. History is buried deep within its walls. It was the bedrock for the working class people of Dublin, whether you were high in society, low in society, no matter what your vice was everyone wanted to be in the Liberties. In the late 1800’s/1900’s there Liberties was the hub for creatives, thinkers, distillers, brewers….there were no rules.
An area known for centuries as ‘Hell’. This wild and wayward quarter of old Dublin, nestled outside the city walls, was notorious for mayhem and riotous behaviour with danger and intrigue waiting on every cobbled corner. But it was industrious too. Alongside the old distilleries were weaving mills, forges, printing-presses, tanneries and illicit taverns. Everyone from tradesmen, low born visitors and the cream of society were all welcome
