At Irish Distillers we are monitoring the developments of Covid-19 on an ongoing basis and following guidance from the WHO, the Irish Government and the HSE. Our business, like many others, will be impacted by this but as always the health of our employees, along with our customers and our communities, is our top priority.
Our brand homes
Our Jameson brand homes, Jameson Distillery Bow St., Dublin and Jameson Distillery Midleton, are operating line with Government guidelines during this time. Please visit https://www.jamesonwhiskey.com/en-UK/visit-us for the most up to date information.
Provision of alcohol for hand sanitiser
Alcohol gel plays a vital part in the frontline efforts of those who are fighting to contain the Covid-19 virus. When a global shortage of hand sanitiser became apparent in March, Irish Distillers approached the Department of Health and the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland to inform them that we were able to help with this specific challenge of the provision of hand sanitiser to healthcare professionals on the frontline.
Our distillery in Midleton, together with our partners Mervue Laboratories in Cork, had the necessary products and supply chain available to manufacture large-scale quantities of alcohol gel and we have committed to maintaining supply for as long as necessary.
Like so many, Irish Distillers is doing what we can at a time of great national crisis. We hope that in doing so, it helps our healthcare professionals in their efforts to protect all of us from the spread of the virus.
