Irish Distillers Group Limited has said it is in talks to sell Paddy whiskey in a move that would see it still being produced at the Midleton Distillery. The group said it had entered into exclusive negotiations with Sazerac Company, Inc. over the sale of Paddy whiskey. Irish Distillers’s owner Pernod said it was not in a position to disclose the deal value. “Pernod Ricard is currently undertaking negotiations with Sazerac. At this point, the focus is on ironing out operational aspects of the deal and preparing for a smooth transition,” a spokesman for Irish Distillers said. Irish Distillers said if the transaction is completed there would be no impact on employers at Irish Distillers with staff continuing to remain on their current terms and conditions. Subject to pending negotiations, Irish Distillers and Sazerac expect to sign and complete the transaction in the coming weeks. If this deal goes through, we are confident that we will be able to take Paddy to the next level, building on its strong history and roots,” said Mark Brown, President and Chief Executive of Sazerac.
