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”

For me, the spirit of Irish Distillers is the people and the culture. You can’t have one without the other, and I think it’s something really special to be a part of. From the experiences to the career growth to the culture at Irish Distillers, I’ve found my place where I want to be.”
