Born from a rich distilling history dating back to the 19th century, Midleton’s renowned bounty has been said to have drawn whiskey into being.

From its beginnings on the banks of the crystalline Dungourney River, Midleton Distillery’s links with the land run deep and long.

Of course whiskey is also the lifeblood of a people and their aspirations. And this town has always been a pioneering community, from the moment the Murphy family started to distil here in 1825.

The new Midleton Disillery and its unique single pot still whiskey have continued that symbiotic connection with the land and its people.

The Cork of today still sings in perfect harmony with the distillery. It is part of this place and part of a people who still transform their bounty, into their legacy.

Midleton Very Rare has only ever come from here. It is its home.

“A great whiskey is more than just a liquid. Its story is one of transformation of grains to complex liquid; it is also one which draws from history. The story is one of people: the craftsmen who create fine whiskey which is enjoyed and shared around the world. It is a story of flavour. Midleton Very Rare can say all of this — and more.”
