The distillery used for its motive-power the first steam engine erected in Ireland the engine was constructed for the sole purpose of producing pot still whiskey. John Power and Son was the first Irish distiller to bottle its own whiskey in 1886, adopting a gold label exclusively for POWERS bottled at Johns Lane. The gold label guaranteed the higher quality and distinguished it from the white label Powers which was bottled by independent whiskey bonders.

The whiskey is made exclusively from malted and unmalted barley, which is triple distilled in copper pot stills.
