Distillers

The Irish Distillers Group, now owned by Pernod Ricard, imports and distributes wines and spirits, including Irish whiskey, cork dry gin, vodka and various wine types through their various subsidiary distilleries. The Irish Distillers Group was established in 1966 following a merger between John Power & Son, John Jameson & Son and The Cork Distillery Company. In 1972, Bushmills, who operated as the only other Irish whiskey distillery at the time, chose to also join the group. Following this merger, Irish Distillers had control over all whiskey production within Ireland. The main reason for their success is due to the production of Jameson, which has become the world’s fastest growing international brand of whiskey.
