James Murphy & Co. (Midleton Distillery) Receipts & Correspondence, Dated 1864 William Pulling & Co.
This lot contains ten pieces of correspondence sent from James Murphy & Co., Cork, to its client William Pulling & Co.
James Murphy, along with his two brothers, established Midleton Distillery in 1825 in a converted woollen mill. In 1867, Cork Distilleries Company was formed by James Murphy, amalgamating four existing Cork distilleries: Daly's, Green, North Mall and Watercourse, with the fifth, Midleton, joining a year later.
Please note, these documents do not explicitly mention Midleton Distillery. They concern Irish Whiskey and were sent from James Murphy & Co., Cork, who was the proprietor of Midleton Distillery from 1825 until the formation of Cork Distilleries Company. These documents date from 1864:
Nine invoices showing hogsheads, puncheons and quarter casks purchased and sent by 'this day's steamer' to Cardiff, Milford and Newport. Some of the casks are for named individuals, such as 'Mr Yorath', 'Mr James', and 'Mr David Doggett'.
One letter confirming receipt of payment of 'nineteen pounds' for duty on a cask or whisky.
