Founded by Pearse and Deirdre Lyons, Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James is history in the remaking and is a new chapter for The Liberties, Dublin.

Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James, founded by Pearse and Deirdre Lyons, is history in the remaking. Pearse Lyons hails from five generations of coopers who supplied barrels to many of Dublin’s distilleries. He holds a Ph.D. in yeast fermentation and was the first Irishman to receive a formal degree in brewing and distilling from the British School of Malting and Brewing. While at university, he interned at both the Guinness and Harp Lager breweries and later worked as a biochemist for Irish Distillers.

In keeping with the boutique nature of Pearse Lyons Distillery, tours will be small in size so that visitors can enjoy a more personal experience. The guided tours are hosted by a team of friendly storytellers who will share intriguing tales dating back as far as the 12th century.
