Brown’s Quay was named after a local brewer. It was also the riverside location of Archibald Walker’s Thomondgate Distillery. Today there is little to see except for the Thomond Weir which I will discuss in a separate post.

In 1809 construction started on the banks of the River Shannon and by 1818 the Thomond Gate Distillery was a sizeable operation. It produced Ireland’s famous Single Pot Still and Malt Irish whiskey, maturing whiskey in Sherry butts, hogsheads and quarter casks for local trade and export. The distillery operated three copper pot stills which produced a “whiskey of good reputation” known as Pot Still Real Irish Whiskey.

Over a century the distillery changed hands a number of times and went by many names, including; Brown(e) Stein & Co, Messrs. Brown, Stein, and Co, Limerick Distillery Co Ltd and by 1868 it was known as Archibald Walkers Limerick Distillery. The only constant was the name, The Thomond Gate Distillery.
