The original Midleton Distillery started life as a woolen mill in 1796 and later became a military barracks during the Napoleonic Wars. In 1825 James Murphy purchased the property from Viscount Midleton for the then princely sum of £4000 and converted into his famous distillery. The Murphy family played a key role in whiskey distilling and their legacy of skill is perpetuated at the new Midleton Distillery, opened in 1975, where Murphys fine Irish Whiskey is produced today.
