The Quiet Man Craft Distillery Co. Ltd

By the end of the 19th century, Derry was the whiskey capital of the world, with more whiskey produced in the city than in any other whiskey producing city in the world. Alas, with the closure of the Watts Distillery in 1921 the craft was lost to Derry but now local drinks company Niche Drinks are changing that. They have been maturing and blending whiskey for almost a decade and their flagship brand The Quiet Man is available in both a Superior Blend and an 8 Year Old Single Malt. Both whiskies have had tremendous success winning Double Gold Medals at the prestigious San Francisco Spirit Completion and also picking up Gold Medals in completions in Ireland, Germany, the USA and the UK. The Quiet Man 8 Year Old Single Malt also won the Drinks Business Gold Medal for Irish Whiskey in 2015.

The company are now building “The Quiet Man Craft Distillery and Visitor Attraction” which is scheduled to open in mid-2018 and will be the first Irish Whiskey distillery to open in the city in 180 years.

Visitors will be able to walk through exhibits detailing the history of whiskey production in the city before going on a guided tour of the working distillery, finishing their visit with a tasting of The Quiet Man.
