The Dublin Whiskey Company has outlined plans to build a new whiskey distillery and visitor center in Mill Street, Dublin, Ireland.

The new facility will occupy 25,000ft┬▓ of space and will have a capacity to produce two million bottles of single malt and pot still Irish whiskey.

Dublin Whiskey managing director Marie Byrne said: "Figures from the Irish Whiskey Association show that there is a ‘global renaissance’ in Irish whiskey and now it is the fastest growing spirits category in the world.

"Potential investors will be attracted to our business by the knowledge that they are investing in a rapidly growing market set against a backdrop where the international prospects for Irish whiskey are bright."

Construction on the facility is slated to begin in early 2015 and is expected to be completed during that year end.

Around 60 jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase. The company is planning to employ 30 employees in the facility.

Dublin Whiskey noted that the whiskey distillery will cater to the increasing demand for Irish whiskey.

In 2013, over 6.2 million, nine-liter cases of Irish whiskey were exported to more than 100 countries across the globe.

By 2020, Irish whiskey exports are expected to double, with 11 new distilleries commencing production in the next few years, reported the Independent.
