Diageo's Bushmills distillery in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, will get a 10th still as part of the parent company's $2.97 million investment in the facility.
Gordon Donoghue, supply director at Old Bushmills, said refurbishment of all nine existing stills in 2007 still was not sufficient to meet consumer demands.
"Diageo's own coppersmiths manufacture the stills in Scotland and each distillery has its own unique shape of potstill which will have a major impact on the taste of the final whiskey," Donoghue told a press conference.
Diageo is hoping to double its output to 1 million cases within the next five years.
