Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey And Adare Manor Collaborate To Unveil An Exclusive
The 5* Adare Manor, recently declared as ‘Hotel of the Year 2018’ at the world-renowned global Virtuoso ‘Best of the Best Awards’ in Las Vegas, is delighted to announce that it has collaborated with Midleton Very Rare to release an exclusive single pot still Irish whiskey, the latest addition to Adare Manor’s Rare Whiskey Collection.
Hand-selected for Adare Manor by Brian Nation, Master Distiller at Midleton Distillery, the exclusive Adare Manor Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey will be unveiled at a Special Launch Evening in the Adare Manor Tack Room bar, where Adare Manor’s extensive rare whiskey collection is housed. On Sunday, 4th November 2018, 22 guests will join Master Distiller Brian Nation, Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett and the Adare Manor team for a special evening which will include sampling of rare varieties of Midleton whiskey and culminating in a tasting of the Adare Manor Midleton Very Rare Single Cask Irish Whiskey. Guests will also receive their own personal bottle of Adare Manor’s Midleton Very Rare whiskey at the event. A limited number of guests can be accommodated at this special evening and these places must be confirmed in advance.
Just two Master Distillers have had the privilege of preserving the legacy of the world’s most sought-after Irish whiskey. Created in 1984 by Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett, Midleton Very Rare is the ultimate expression of his art and expertise. Once a year, Master Distiller, Brian Nation honours Barry’s vision by handpicking the finest and rarest whiskeys available and carefully blends them to create each annual vintage of Midleton Very Rare. Only a select number of casks are deemed of sufficient excellence and rarity to bear the Midleton Very Rare name, making this the pinnacle of Irish whiskey. This Midleton Very Rare single cask whiskey will be a worthy addition to Adare Manor’s rare collection from around the world.
Speaking today, Brendan O’Connor, Resident Manager at Adare Manor said: “We are honoured and excited to host this premium whiskey evening at Adare Manor. It is very special to be able to welcome the craftsmen from the Midleton Distillery led by Brian Nation and Barry Crockett to Adare Manor for the first time following our special collaboration, where a meticulous tasting and selection process resulted in the wonderful discovery of a whiskey, which embodies the exceptional heritage and luxury of Adare Manor. We are privileged to have them with us. Over the past two years, we at Adare Manor have amassed one of the rarest whiskey collections in Ireland from around the world, which has received huge praise and admiration from guests to date. Guests joining us on the 4th of November can look forward to an evening to remember featuring the finest, rare whiskeys from Midleton Distillery within the luxury setting of The Tack Room bar in the Manor House”.
Brian Nation, Master Distiller at the Midleton Distillery said: “We are delighted to be coming to Adare Manor in County Limerick, to mark the launch of Midleton Very Rare Adare Manor single cask Irish whiskey – a first for the Midleton Distillery.

Details on the Cask:
Adare Manor’s Midleton Very Rare whiskey is a single cask Irish whiskey, which was laid down to mature on the 12th of January 1995 in an American oak barrel that previously held Bourbon whiskey. A single pot still Irish whiskey, the distillate was crafted from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and distilled three times in Midleton’s copper pot stills – a process that creates a silky mouthfeel and imparts a spicy character to the finish. After 23 years in the maturation warehouse, carefully overseen by the craftsmen of Midleton, the result is a smooth and complex Irish whiskey with notes of sandalwood, dark chocolate and zesty fruits, which is bottled at 52.5% ABV. The whiskey is available exclusively from Adare Manor at RRP €2,000.
