product Details

Midleton Very Rare 1996 Edition 

This famous blend of whiskies was initially produced by Jameson's Master Distiller, Barry Crockett, and has been released in very limited quantities on  an annual basis since 1984 right up to the current year. In 2013, when Barry  Crockett retired, in his honour Irish Distillers released the acclaimed 'Barry  Crockett Legacy' whiskey. In 2014, Brian Nation took over as Master Distiller and he has carried on the proud Midleton Very Rare tradition right up to the present day.

The whiskey is aged somewhere between 12 and 25 years and matured solely in Bourbon casks. Each bottle is individually numbered and carries the signature of the Master Distiller.

The pre-2000 editions of the Midleton Very Rare still contain vintages of whiskey produced at the now closed Old Midleton distillery.
