The Midleton Very Rare Silent Distillery Collection was created in 1984 by Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett: this fine whiskey is the ultimate expression of his art and expertise. Once a year, Master Distiller, as a high-end brand, expresses its vision by handpicking the finest and rarest whiskeys available and carefully blends them to create each annual vintage of Midleton Very Rare. Discover more about this unique collection and about this exclusive and fine whiskey – the perfect spirit for your luxury lifestyle!
Excellence and rarity are what is making of this fine whiskey the true pinnacle of Irish whiskey. This one last collection by Old Midleton Distillery is called “The Midleton Very Rare Silent Collection” and it consists of six whiskeys aged between 45 and 50 years, forming Irish whiskey’s oldest collection, with a new release annually until 2025, Old Midleton Distillery’s 200th birthday. The Silent Collection of this fine whiskey is an orientation to Old Midleton’s status as a silent distillery: one that has closed its doors, finishing production.
As time passes, the liquid left inside the walls of a silent distillery becomes highly sought after for its taste, prestige, and rarity, with such spirits known as unicorn whiskeys. Laid down in 1974, the rare and fine whiskey was the culmination of a series of trials by Master Distiller Emeritus Max Crockett, with his experimentation in peated spirits between 1964 and 1974 finally coming to light.
There are only 48 bottles of this rare and luxury whiskey, making this the rarest whiskey in the collection, the unique that combines the Irish heritage and craftsmanship. The decanter has been designed by Waterford Crystal, each example a hand-blown, etched, unique design and work of art, and comes displayed in a wooden cabinet handcrafted by Irish designer John Galvin, using wood from reclaimed whiskey vats up to 200 years old.
