The Goodbody 2015 EIIS Fund’s investee company, The Shed Distillery, have opened their new visitor centre in September 2020.
Investee Company Name: PJ Rigney Distillery
Investment Amount: €250,000
In 2016, the Goodbody EIIS Fund 2015 invested in The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney in Drumshanbo, County Leitrim. Since this investment, the distillery’s first brand, Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, is going from strength to strength in Ireland and internationally.
The Leitrim based distillery opened a €3m state-of-the-art visitor experience in September of this year. It was due to open in May 2020 however this was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The centre will employ over 20 staff and aims to attract over 10,000 visitors in the first year. It can become a great asset for the local community in Drumshanbo and the county of Leitrim.
