Adare Manor To Host A Unique Whiskey Tasting Experience With Midleton

An evening to “Experience the Rare”.


The five-star hotel and golf resort in Co. Limerick has teamed with Midleton Distillery to host a unique event that will tickle the fancy of whiskey connoisseurs. 

Adare Manor is celebrating the iconic Irish whiskey Midleton Very Rare with “Experience the Rare”, an exclusive guided whiskey tasting through the Midleton Very Rare collection.

On Monday November 4th, from 6pm, Brian Nation, Master Distiller at Midleton Distillery, and Ger Garland of Pernod-Ricard, will bring attendees on a journey through some of the country’s finest whiskey. After the guided tasting led by the two whiskey experts, guests will enjoy a three-course set dinner, before being invited to conclude the evening in the cosy Tack Room.

Midleton Very Rare, a unique blend of Irish whiskey

It’s Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett who originally created the now-iconic designation, and the bottles bore his name from 1984 to 2013. Since 2014, the bottles have been signed by Master Distiller Brian Nation. Once a year, Brian picks the finest and rarest whiskeys available and carefully blends them to create each vintage of Midleton Very Rare, following the vision of its original creator. 

Midleton Very Rare is not blended like other whiskeys to create a continuity. The handcrafted nature of each bottling means each vintage is unique, with no two years being exactly alike. Only a select number of casks are deemed of sufficient excellence to bear the Midleton Very Rare name, making this the pinnacle of Irish whiskey. During the Experience the Rare evening, the Midleton Very Rare single cask collaboration with Adare Manor will be available to purchase for the final time.

A ticket to the event, a bottle of the Adare Manor x Midleton Very Rare collaboration and an overnight in a Deluxe room including breakfast in The Gallery the following morning can be purchased for €2,200 per person. Ticketholders may bring a guest to join them at the event, sharing the same room, for an additional €250.
