Midleton Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest
Single Pot Still
Midleton // Ireland
Midleton Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest is the third release in the brand's native Irish oak series. To create this release, single pot still whiskeys ranging in age from 13-26 years old which matured primarily in American oak ex-bourbon barrels were selected. Irish oak was harvested from the Knockrath Forest located in Co. Wicklow. Then the oak traveled to Spain and was made into staves which air-dried for 15 months. From these oak staves, hogshead casks were made and toasted. This whiskey then finished aging in these virgin Irish oak hogsheads for two years. The whiskey is bottled at cask strength with its ABV ranging from 56.1-56.6%. Available as of January 2020 in Ireland, UK, France, US and China.
Single Pot StillProduced in Ireland from a mash of unmalted and malted barley (30% each required) from one distillery. Traditionally, it is distilled three times in a pot still. Up to 5% of other grains allowed. Must be aged for at least three years.
