Midleton Distillery Experience

Midleton Distillery Experience

9 Oct 2023

We are incredibly proud to have been involved in the Midleton Distillery Experience, which was officially opened by Irish Distillers and Tánaiste Micheal Martin.

The visitor centre has undergone a multi-million-euro redevelopment, transforming the venue into a world-class, multi-sensory Irish whiskey experience. PJ Hegarty has a rich history with Irish Distillers, with works dating back to 1928, and we have had the pleasure of working on the Midleton Distillery site since the 1970s, working on new build construction, upgrades, conservation and maintenance works.

On this project, conservation and restoration of the existing structures and features were paramount, as many of the original distillery buildings date back to 1794. To preserve the fabric of the historic buildings, improvements and upgrades using like-for-like materials in conjunction with modern construction methods were utilised. The project was constructed with sustainability and efficiency at the fore of the design. Incorporating an efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning system and the retrofit of existing buildings will deliver improved energy performance throughout the venue and help reduce energy usage.

Thank you to everyone involved in making this project a resounding success, including Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Fraser Randall Ltd, Michael Lucey & Associates, PM Group and Allen Barber and Associates.
