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 is difficult to over-estimate the importance of Kennetpans Distillery, founded in the 1720s byJohn Stein  - 'the Father of Commercial Whisky Distilling'. The site is of great importance to the industrial archeological heritage of Scotland. It would be nothing short of a tragedy if the site was left to vanish.”
