You Can Now Get your Own Cask of Irish Whiskey by Joining the Midleton Very Rare Cask Circle Club
Whiskey aficionados and collectors, take note: The Midleton Very Rare Cask Circle Club is making it possible for you to obtain your own cask of Midleton Very Rare Irish whiskey, sourced from a variety of exceptional casks hand selected by Master Distiller, Brian Nation.
The experience of having your own cask starts when you choose the special one that pleases your palate with the help of expert guidance. After that, you can get your whiskey bottled immediately or request bottles when it suits you.
The range of whiskeys to choose from includes diverse styles and ages and many are matured in different types of casks including Bourbon, Sherry, Malaga, Port, Irish Oak and Rum. Thirty casks have been made available at launch, with prices available on request.
Members of the Midleton Very Rare Cask Circle will have access to the Distillery Concierge, who will provide assistance in every step of the whiskey-loving journey: from choosing the perfect whiskey to planning an extended itinerary, the Distillery Concierge can even arrange world class golfing at illustrious courses and tours across Ireland’s picturesque scenery.
Jean Christophe-Coutures, Chairman and CEO at Irish Distillers, commented: “Irish Distillers introduced the world to luxury Irish whiskey back in 1984 and Midleton Very Rare has since become the embodiment for exceptional quality, craftsmanship and collectability. The unveiling of the Midleton Very Rare Cask Circle Club and the new Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release heralds a new era for luxury Irish whiskey and is testament to the growing demand for our finest, prestige Irish whiskeys around the world.”
Midleton Very Rare comes from a selected number of casks that have been considered worthy of the name. Midleton Very Rare 2017 was blended from a hand selected batch of ex-Bourbon Barrels ranging in age from 12 years to 32 years.
Speaking about Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release 2017, Master Distiller, Brian Nation commented: “The 2017 cask selection includes some 32-year-old Midleton Grain Whiskey which will contribute the lighter floral perfume notes along with some citrus fruit. A 26-year-old Single Pot Still whiskey has also been selected, which delivers a wide spectrum of typical spice character, such as sweet cinnamon and clove.”
Bottled at 40% ABV and without chill-filtration, the new-look Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release 2017 is available from this month at the RRP of €180 and is available in the USA, Canada, Ireland and Ireland Travel Retail.
