About Locke's Distillery Museum

Locke's Distillery Museum is located at Main Street in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath.

Locke's Distillery Museum. Take a step back in time and visit the oldest licensed distillery in the world.

Established in 1757, triple distilled malt whiskey was produced in Kilbeggan for over two hundred years. Now open as a museum, guided tours follow the process from the grinding of the grain to the casking of the final product. Learn about the lives and the working conditions of the people who worked here. Peer down into the 28ft deep solid oak vats to where the yeast and worts fermented. Look as the nineteenth century water wheel drives the restored machinery. Watch as the cooper tightens the hoops of the oak casks. Stroll through the Bonded Warehouse and let the aroma of maturing whiskey arouse your senses.
