Midleton

Midleton Distillery

The Midleton distilleries complex is situated in Midleton, County Cork, Ireland. It is owned by Pernod Ricard. Located alongside is the Old Midleton Distillery which was established in the early 17th century.

History

In 1966, John Power & Son, John Jameson & Son and the Cork Distillery Company (which owned the Old Midleton distillery) merged to form the Irish Distillers Group. The board of the newly formed company decided to close their existing distilleries and consolidate all production at a new facility. This was built at Midleton as it was the only existing site with room for expansion. In July 1975, production ended at The Old Jameson Distillery and began in the new one. The old distillery has since been turned into a visitors centre. Since 2010 the distillery has expanded vastly, with Irish Distillers investing over €200 million to double the capacity of the plant and build a new maturing facility in Dungourney, a nearby village.

Production

Midleton is one of the most modern distilleries in the world and has its production areas linked via fibre-optic networks. The Midleton factory, with a production capacity of 64 million litres per annum, is the largest in Ireland. The distillery boasts three 75,000 litre pot stills, and three column, which are used in combinations of three to produce different types of whiskey.
