Introducing the next chapter of Ireland’s oldest ever collection of Irish whiskey, the fourth release of Midleton Very Rare’s Silent Distillery Collection. This 48-year-old whiskey contains the finest Pot Still and grain whiskeys before being aged to perfection. The Midleton Very Rare Silent Distillery Collection contains six unparalleled releases, each inspired from an element that has sparked its luxurious nature. The first release came in 2020, and each year the team at Midleton Very Rare will share a new chapter until 2025, with each whiskey hailing from the legendary Old Midleton Distillery which operated from 1825 to 1975.

A once busy and bustling distillery turned silent in 1975, this special collection from Old Midleton is a relic of the whiskey brilliance which has come before. Now it is bottled, expertly packaged in a unique cabinet of unparalleled quality, and made available to a lucky few to sip, savour, and own forever. This is your piece of Midleton Very Rare history few get a chance to taste.

Created and matured under the watchful eyes of each celebrated Master Distiller at Midleton Very Rare, the whiskey has been enhanced through each changing of hands, with the respective Masters taking great care to protect the legacy of the precious liquid.



Notes of chocolate dipped honeycomb with caramelised red apples and quince jelly. Luxurious aromas are enhanced by the sweetness of coffee cake and vanilla-scented cream, while earthy fragrances are matched by those of an antique, cedarwood cigar box. Dried flowers, that still carry delicate waves of a floral perfume, add to the array of flavours.


An explosion of fruits at first with fresh plums, peaches, and dried apricot. A hint of chilli oil and grated ginger follows. Delicate oak tannins, perfectly balanced with the fruits and pot still spices, work in harmony with a suggestion of mature Roquefort cheese. Floral and sweet grain whiskey add finesse, making this a wonderfully complex blend that is silk-textured and full-bodied.


Stone fruits and soft spices continue to linger for a time, with the oak tannins quietly fading into the background.
