Jameson whiskey in €100m expansion

20 December, 2011

Pernod Ricard is creating 60 new jobs in Ireland with a €100 million upgrade of the distillery which produces Jameson whiskey.

The company’s Irish Distillers arm will begin work on expanding the facilities at Midleton, Co Cork, next year.

Thirty jobs will be created the Midleton distillery itself, and a further 30 at the company’s bottling plant at Fox & Geese in Dublin.  The expansion is scheduled to be completed within 15 months, by a team of 250 construction workers.

Head of marketing Patrick Venning said: “Jameson is in its 23rd consecutive year of growth, and this expansion of its key site in Midleton will continue to push the brand from strength to strength. 

“As well as supporting the growth of Jameson’s global exports, the development of the distillery will also hugely benefit the local economy. The plans include a focus on environmental sustainability, and as part of the expansion, we are committed to reducing 33% of energy and 20% of water consumer, per litre of alcohol distilled.”
