Irish Distillers, makers of some of the world’s most enjoyed whiskeys, has introduced Midleton Very Rare Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest, the third release in the Dair Ghaelach collection. A remarkable addition to the Midleton Very Rare story, the new expression has matured in barrels made from virgin Irish oak grown in Knockrath Forest, County Wicklow, reinforcing Midleton’s provenance and its standing as a true taste of Ireland.
Recently I had the privilege to ask Ger Buckley, Master Cooper of Midleton Distillery some “serious” questions. I’ve met him during my stay at The Whiskey Academy in Ireland.
When you’re ever in the opportunity to shake this man’s hand with the opportunity to have a little chat, do it! Do not hesitate, just go for it. An amazing man, with amazing stories and an amazing strength.

Beginning with a tease review before sharing the rest of this stunning adventure! It all happened so fast.
