Midleton Very Rare Unveils First Single Cask Crafted By Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman

Kevin O’Gorman

Midleton Very Rare has introduced the first Single Cask whiskey crafted by Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman. In 1998, O’Gorman joined the Midleton family as a Distiller at the Midleton Distillery. In 2007, he earned the title of Master of Maturation and in 2020, he became Master Distiller. This whiskey is the first Single Cask to bear his name. ​

Kevin O’Gorman 22 year old whiskey

The year Kevin O’Gorman joined Midleton, in 1998, this whiskey was distilled. Having followed this special spirit through its maturation, after 22 years he has chosen this as his first Single Cask release. While there were many spirits lining our vaults to choose from, it was the nose, the taste and the complexity of this whiskey which held his attention. This decision was not one he made lightly. Instead it was the culmination of years of knowledge, expertise and understanding that allowed him to bring you the best of what this single cask had to offer. ​

Bottled at 54.5% ABV​, just 144 bottles of this Irish whiskey will be made available and are priced at €710 each. Purchases are strictly limited to 1 bottle per person with shipping commencing from November 5th.
