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, the birthplace of the Scottish Whisky Industry, the very Genesis of all things #Scotch, lies unloved and in ruins. We created modern Distilling, gave it to the World and this is how much Scotland cares about this unique and frankly incredible historical legacy. We don't. Not one bit. Its a disgrace."
