Irish Distillers announced plans for expansion of bottling at its Fox and Geese facility in Clondalkin, Dublin with an investment of €17 Million.
This €17 Million investment reflects the incredible pace of growth in the Irish whiskey category and will increase bottling capacity at the site from 5 million 9-litre cases to 7.5 million cases – or 120 million bottles – of Jameson per year by 2017.
The Fox and Geese bottling site was first home to bottling of Powers Irish Whiskey, which relocated from Drury Street in 1965. Irish Distillers was formed in 1966 and became part of global spirits company Pernod Ricard in 1988, which repatriated bottling of Jameson Irish whiskey to the Dublin facility. Last year the facility bottled over 60 million bottles of Irish whiskey.
This expansion creates 30 new jobs.
