Taoiseach Enda Kenny has opened a €100m extension to the Irish Distillers plant at Midleton in Co Cork.

The facility, which was built in a year, will allow the company to double the production capacity of the plant to 64 million litres of pure alcohol.

The plant, which produces Jameson whiskey, had been operating at full capacity to meet demand and the expansion has created 60 new jobs.
