Warehouse A1 was one of the original warehouses built in 1800’s by the Murphy family and thus, it is one of the first warehouses used to mature Cork Distillery whiskey, or later to be called Paddy’s whiskey and Midleton whiskey. Warehouse A1 has been carefully restored with its original features and characteristics. Visitors will be able to see and feel the old-style maturation process as we will be storing 1000 casks full with our traditional pot still whiskey.
