U2's lead singer Bono is opening his checkbook instead of his mouth, to invest $58 million into an Irish Whiskey Distillery. The 200-year-old mill began distilling whiskey in 1784, and the Irish businessman Paddy McKillen is revamping the newly acquired distillery in Monasterevin, Co. Kildare, Ireland.
According to Forbes.com McKillen has stated 'We’re restoring a beautiful 200-year-old mill and reviving Monasterevin’s rich heritage in producing the finest whiskey going right back to the 18th century" He was also quoted as saying "'We have assembled an amazing team of world-leading experts and we will produce a world class product."
