June 07, 2022

The iconic Titanic Pump-House located in the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter is being transformed into a whiskey distillery and world class tourist attraction. The listed building first opened in 1911 and is the world’s only authentic Titanic landmark. The Pump-House is located close to the historic Thompson Dry Dock and HMS Caroline.

Titanic Distillers whom are a Belfast drinks company have been given the go ahead by Belfast City Council to convert the Pump-House into a working distillery with associated visitor tours. Titanic Distillers is owned by multiple Belfast businessmen.

The original pump equipment and internal historic features of the listed building will be retained and maintain part of the tourist attraction. Alongside the restoration, the exterior of the Titanic Pump-House will remain largely untouched maintaining it’s fascinating Belfast heritage. The building will entail a tourism centre, ‘speakeasy’ bar and café, restaurant, gift shop, exhibition space and an enlarged mezzanine floor with tasting rooms.

The Titanic Pump-House will be the city’s first working whiskey distillery in over 100 years. The building will be retained with it’s fascinating heritage telling the story of Belfast and the history of first-class whiskey.
