Midleton launches single pot still, single cask whiskeys

12th February, 2013 by Andy Young

Irish Distillers has released 10 single pot still, single cask whiskeys under the Midleton brand.

Midleton Single Pot Still Single Cask WhiskeyThe new expressions, which will be available at six retailers in Ireland, France, Germany and the UK, follow on from the successful launch of Irish Distillers’ first single pot still, single cask whiskey in 2010.

Barry Crockett, master distiller at Midleton Distillery, said: “The Midleton brand name is synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship and the extension of the single pot still single cask releases has allowed us to further showcase the quality of the single pot still style to whiskey connoisseurs, who eagerly anticipate opportunities to taste Midleton whiskeys.

“The response to the release in 2010 was phenomenal, so I anticipate a similar reaction this year and look forward to discussing each cask with Single Pot Still whiskey advocates.”

Each of the new expressions has been matured in ex-Bourbon casks, which have been charred and seasoned with Bourbon. The individual casks, which were laid down between 1991 and 1999, have yielded, on average, 185 bottles.

Each expression is presented in a premium bottle, following the same design cues as Midleton Very Rare, “the most exclusive whiskey produced at The Midleton Distillery”.
