Titanic Distillers is now open

We are very excited to welcome Belfast’s newest tourist attraction to Thompson Dry Dock and pumphouse, in the heart of the Maritime Mile. Titanic Distillers is the city’s first working whiskey distillery in almost 90 years, and it is certainly worth the wait!

Visitors can visit the listed building, the Pumphouse, and neighbouring Thompson Dry Dock, which first opened in 1911 to service the massive White Star transatlantic liners Olympic and most famously RMS Titanic. This makes it the site where Titanic last rested on dry ground before her maiden voyage.

The original pump equipment has been restored and the historical features of the building have been retained making this a truly unique experience.

Titanic Distillers is inspired by the people who worked in Belfast’s shipyard more than a century ago. Visitors to the Pumphouse will clock in, to view the workings of the distillery and hear the story of Belfast’s whiskey tradition. The tour is a sensory experience topped off with tasting a sample of the award-winning spirits.
