Turnkey Solution Will Enable Meade Distillery to Produce 10K Bottles Per Week
As consumer interest in locally brewed and distilled beverages such as beers and spirits continue to rise, demand can often exceed supply. Meade Distillery specialises in the production of Irish potato-based spirits and is now expanding its range to include the production of local vodka and whiskey products. The planned extension of its beverage offering coupled with rising demand for its range of spirits meant that the distillery required a complete cost-effective solution that incorporated the latest technological innovations.
Spectac International is the number one choice of Irish distillers looking for a productive and efficient complete distillery solution. The company was awarded the Meade Distillery project contract in August 2018, an end-to-end solution that includes a 4000 Litre Copper/Stainless Wash Still and a 200L Spirit Still. Production calculations for this project are showing capabilities of 10,000 bottles per week. The project is currently ongoing and is due to be installed and functioning by the summer of 2019.
“We are delighted to partner with Meade Distillery to enable its expansion and increased production plans and look forward to witnessing the first bottles being produced,” said Faye Healy, Director of Spectac International Ltd. “We are the only company in Ireland to provide a complete system solution for industrial distilleries and brewers. With such a system our customers no longer need to deal with multiple suppliers and manage third parties, making it a commercially viable and cost-effective option for them. The solution incorporates the latest technological innovations with continuous support from our engineering team throughout the whole process, from planning to implementation right through to production.”
Meade Distillery is part of the Meade Potato Company, located in Navan, Co. Meath. Founded in 1982, the company is one of Ireland’s leading growers, suppliers and distributors of fresh fruit and vegetables to the retail market.
