Midleton Dair Ghaelach, which means quite simply, Irish oak, is the result of a six-year exploration by the Midleton Masters into using native oak to mature Irish whiskey.
Led by then Master of Maturation, Kevin O’Gorman, the two prerequisites for the project were to source Irish oak in a sustainable way, viable for the long-term, and to craft a new and outstanding style of Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.
This whiskey is a range of releases that have been matured in barrels made from virgin Irish oak from particular forests across Ireland. The oak selected for each release influences this special whiskey with the true and unique flavour of Ireland.
Its provenance told in each sublime sip, this is the tale of our native oak striking harmony with the classically rich and spicy Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey character. This is a whiskey like no other.
The story of each bottle of Midleton Dair Ghaelach can be traced right back to the very oak trees that helped to create its refined and unmistakable taste.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach is non-chill filtered, cask strength and natural colour.
Distilled, matured and bottled by Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork, Ireland.
