From grain to glass, many of the world’s best loved Irish whiskeys are created at Midleton Distillery, our 160 acre site in Co. Cork. Here, we produce all of the pot still and grain whiskey that makes up Irish Distillers’ six Irish whiskey families. From the Garden Still House containing the world’s largest operating copper pot stills to our experimental hub at the Micro Distillery, Midleton Distillery is a world leader in whiskey production.
“I joined Midleton Distillery as part of the Engineering Graduate Programme. The distillery is steeped in history and heritage but embraces innovation and new technologies. I have been lucky to be involved in numerous large scale projects, including the design of our new Microdistillery. This involved commissioning the stills, right through to filling into barrels. Midleton Distillery is a truly special place”
