The Midleton Distillery is considered the unequalled giant of Irish distilling, the producer of some of the island’s best-loved whiskies, including Jameson, Redbreast, and Powers. The various whiskies now under the Midleton umbrella combine for a continuous distilling tradition dating back to 1779. The New Midleton Distillery was opened in 1975, the company having been formed after the three smaller distilleries, Jameson, Powers and the Cork Distillery, banded together for the sake of survival and shifted all their individual production to the only location fit for proper expansion. Midleton Dair Ghaelach, which means quite simply, Irish oak, is the result of a six-year exploration by the Midleton Masters into using native oak to mature Irish whiskey. Each release in the series was finished in casks using wood from a different forest, this being form Kylebeg Wood in County Laois, and bottles are numbered for the individual trees used. This is a whiskey fragrant with woodland spices and zesty fruit notes, with rich wood tannins on the palate and a long fruit- and spice-filled finish.
