In a statement released today, the group's Irish Distillers unit said a male member of staff was involved in a "serious incident, which resulted in a fatality". The incident took place this morning in Dungourney, just outside the town of Midleton.

The name of the deceased has not been released publicly.

"We would like to express our deepest sympathy to his family," Irish Distillers said. "We are offering all the support available to those affected by this tragic accident.

"At this time, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further, as the incident is the subject of an investigation by An Gardaí Síochána and the Health & Safety Authority," the statement continued.

"We are cooperating fully with the investigation."

Pernod originally acquired a plot of land in Dungourney in 2011, as part of a project to expand its ageing facilities, with around 20 additional warehouses. Midleton is home to the distillery that produces, among other Irish whiskey expressions, the global market leader, Jameson.
