Tullamore Dew is a brand of blended Irish whiskey produced by William Grant & Sons. It is the second largest selling Irish whiskey globally, with sales of over 950,000 cases per annum as of 2015.

The whiskey was originally produced in the Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland at the old Tullamore Distillery which was established in 1829. Its name being derived from the initials of Daniel E. Williams (D.E.W.), a general manager and later owner of the original distillery.
