About Belfast Distillery Company
Originally founded in 1776, McConnell's went out of business in 1930 and is now being resurrected by the Belfast Distillery Company. The original brand would have been produced at the Cromac Distillery in Belfast from 1776 to 1930 and was considered to be the oldest whisky brand in Northern Ireland (although, Bushmills license is 1608, the brand was not called Bushmills until late 1700's). Please note that this brand has always spelled their whisky without the 'e' and is one of the few Irish whiskey brands to do so.
Their initial launch is a 5 Year Old blend comprised of single malt and grain whiskies, and the Belfast Distillery Company hopes to be open to the public late 2020 at their purpose built distillery on the Crumlin Road.
