Introducing our Midleton Very Rare 2022 Vintage Release, expertly crafted by our Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman.

In 2021, Kevin O’Gorman created his first vintage release at the helm of our distilling team. Now, in 2022, his second chapter of the pinnacle of Irish whiskey is adorned with his signature and is ready to be enjoyed.

Since 1984, each Master Distiller of Midleton Very Rare uses their eye for detail, their passion for quality whiskey and their exemplary skill to create the pinnacle of Irish whiskey—our special vintage release. When our Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crocket saw an opportunity to bring together the very best of the magic of our Midleton Distillery to create a whiskey like no other, our Vintage Release was born.

Over the years, this privilege has been owned by three Midleton Very Rare Master Distillers, Barry Crockett, Brian Nation and now, Kevin O’Gorman. Each has brought their own unique talents and vast understanding of the Midleton Distillery inventory to vintage releases which bear their name, crafting a symphonic masterpiece of light and shade, skill, and passion. This passion, born from the rich distilling history of Midleton, lives on through Kevin O’Gorman, who has spent his career with Midleton as part of our distillation and maturation teams. This knowledge, along with his passion for quality whiskey and the legacy of the Midleton name has allowed him to create a truly special embodiment of this Midleton magic for our new Midleton Very Rare 2022 Vintage Release. The Midleton Very Rare 2022 Vintage Release, a work of true passion and skill, is now available to be purchased and enjoyed.

Purchased are strictly limited to 1 bottle per person.
