Irish Distillers

Irish Distillers is planning to expand its Fox and Geese bottling facility in Clondalkin, Dublin, Ireland, with an investment of €17m to increase the company’s bottling capacity.

The expansion forms a part of the company’s investment programme, which also included a €200m expansion of its distillery in Midleton and maturation facility in Dungourney, County Cork.

The expansion would create 30 new jobs and increase the bottling capacity from the current five million 9l cases to 7.5 million cases, or 120 million Jameson bottles annually by 2017.

Irish Distillers CEO Anna Malmhake said: "Today marks a landmark moment in the history of Fox and Geese as we celebrate 50 years of bottling here and an expansion, which will increase bottling capacity at the site by 60%.

"Investing in critical infrastructure such as the Fox and Geese bottling facility will enable us to realise that vision."

"Irish Distillers’ portfolio of brands has been growing by double-digits for the last 20 years and we are continuously investing in our operations to keep pace with demand. Our long-term vision is for Irish whiskey to regain its place as the biggest whiskey category in the world.

"Investing in critical infrastructure such as the Fox and Geese bottling facility will enable us to realise that vision."
