Irish Distillers to expand Midleton

Jameson producer Irish Distillers will invest €150 million (US$173.7m) in its Midleton Distillery, maturation site and bottling plant over the next two years to meet demand for its Irish whiskeys.

Of the funds put forward, close to €130m will be used to expand and upgrade the Midleton Distillery and maturation site in Dungourney, County Cork, which will receive eight new warehouses. More than €20m will be used to upgrade the firm’s Fox and Geese bottling site in Dublin.

Conor McQuaid, chairman and CEO of Irish Distillers, said at the time: “This investment will help to allow this growth to continue for years to come. The company is proud to play its role in the Irish drinks industry, which is a hugely important part of the Irish economy.”
