Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey
WHEN THEY SAY VERY RARE, THEY MEAN IT.
The very first Midleton Very Rare, 1984, was created by Master Distiller Barry Crockett from some of the very finest whiskeys originally laid down by his father and Master Distiller, Max Crockett.
Over 25 years later, Barry, his son and successor continues the noble task of hand-picking no more than 250 precious casks of rare whiskeys from which to create this truly magnificent and much celebrated whiskey.
Midleton Very Rare is one of the most exclusive whiskeys ever produced in Ireland. Exclusively matured in American oak barrels, this whiskey is only available in strictly limited quantities as just a small number of casks are personally selected by the Master Distiller, Brian Nation. (Prior to 2014 the Master Distiller was Barry Crockett). An annual selection since 1984 and thus, very collectable, each bottle is individually numbered and bears the signature of the Master Distiller as a final guarantee of outstanding quality.
