1795 - c 1850

Robert Haig (1764 - 1834) moved to Dublin where his sister had married John Jameson. There he established Dodderbank Distillery in 1795.

By 1802 it had become one of the largest distilleries in Dublin. He later installed one of the first Coffey Stills and production reached 330,000 gallons annually.

It closed around 1850.

“Kennetpans is an important site in the Historic development of the whisky industry, and for something to survive since 18th century and being an early forerunner in the industrial revolution of Scotland, I agree it should be saved.”
