  • Have you ever wondered how many warehouses are needed on site to fulfill Midleton Distillery's vast whiskey needs?
  • Do you know how often a new warehouse needs to be built?
  • Would you like to know how many whiskey casks exist on site?
  • How are all casks inventoried and their movement tracked?
  • Why are casks stored upright instead of on their sides?
  • How many bays, rows and barrels in every warehouse?
  • What is the load-bearing weight of a pallet of barrels?
  • What is the journey of the wood used in a sherry butt?
  • How are port and sherry casks made?

Midleton Distillery Master Distiller Kevin O'Gorman was kind enough to take us on a tour of the sprawling Midleton Distillery Warehouse Complex recently. All these questions and more answered in the incredibly insightful video we shot in Midleton Distillery. A big thank you to Kevin O'Gorman for his generosity of time and the fascinating information shared.
