In the early 19th century, a series of buildings in southeast Ireland that were being used to mill wool were sold to the Irish government for 1,250. Within two decades, the government sold the buildings to Lord Midleton, who set about to convert the mill into a distillery. Today, Midleton Distillery marries together time-honored, traditional distillation techniques with modern equipment to produce some of the finest whiskey in all of Ireland.
Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Irish Whiskey is a limited-edition, single pot still Irish whiskey made in homage to the the distillery's eponymously named master distiller. Crockett, who is a second-generation master distiller, was literally born at Midleton Distillery (his father was the master distiller of Midleton at the time, and his family lived at the distillery). At the age of 17, Crockett began apprenticing under the tutelage of his father, and eventually succeeded him in 1981. For nearly five decades, Crockett has stewarded the development of new spirits at Midleton Distillery.
Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley that is triple-distilled through a copper-pot still and then matured for up to 22 years in a combination of seasoned American oak casks and casks that were previously used to mature bourbon. It has an aroma of lime, green berries, apples and poached pears. Notes of vanilla, charred oak and cherries dominate the palate, and are accented by touches of spice and light pepper. The finish is well-balanced and slowly fades into hints of lime, orange and cinnamon. The whiskey earned a score of 92 points fromWhisky Advocate, and earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013. In addition, it earned a score of 99 points, and was rated the best Irish whiskey, at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2012.
