Dungourney 1964 Pure Pot Still Special Reserve
Dungourney was a a pure pot still Irish whiskey brand produced by the Cork Distilleries Co, this was distilled at Old Midleton in 1964.
The Old Midleton distillery was established by the Murphy brothers in 1825, having converted an old woolden mill originally built by Marcus Lynch on land granted to him by the Viscount Midleton. The Cork Distilleries group was formed in 1867, with Midleton joining the following year, and over the next century, it was the last in the company still active. Cork Distilleries has been the product of a market downturn caused by various political, social and economic factors, and just shot of 100 years later, a similar melting pot of problems was boiling over. The result was that Ireland remaining three companies, Cork Distilleries, Powers and Jameson, all joined forces to become the Irish Distillers group. Their distilleries were closed down over the next decade, with all operations moved to a New Midleton distillery, which opened in 1975. Old Midleton is now the home of a Jameson visitor experience, and whiskey distilled there in its time is increasingly valuable.
This whiskey was bottled in the 1990s, having been lost and then later discovered off the books by New Midleton Master Distiller, Barry Crockett.
