‘The pinacle of Irish Whiskey‘
The Midleton Distillery is the biggest distillery in Ireland and home to the world renowned brands of Irish whiskey; Jameson, Paddy and Powers, which also includes Midleton, Writers Tears, The Irishman, Green Spot, Yellow Spot. From a woolen mill in the late 18th century to being sold to the archbishop of Cashel and then being left to Lord Midleton.
The three Murphy brothers then converted the mill into a distillery in 1825. This distillery produced a range of brands at the time, but then joined John Powers and John Jameson to form the Irish Distillers Group. The group subsequently built a new distillery to house and produce all of their brands, bottling an estimated 240 million bottles of Jameson, Powers and Paddy whiskeys.
