A Christmas Tasting @ The Roundy

Pot Still Whiskeys of Midleton - The Influence of Oak Maturation

In the bustling festive atmosphere that is the Roundy bar and venue, we have a stellar lineup to help kick-start your Christmas celebrations. Reserve your space below or read on for further info:

On the night we'll be treated to:
  • An amazing coopering demonstration by Midleton Master Cooper Ger Buckley
  • A talk and tasting by our own Eric Ryan, of Midleton distillery, on the history, production method and unique flavours of Single Pot Still whiskey
  • A talk from author, Fionnan O Connor, about his book on Pot Still whiskey "A Glass Apart"

As we are guided through the individual stories behind each brand, we will explore each individual whiskey to determine the unique flavour properties provided by particular casks used in the maturation process.

On the night we will also get to taste:

  •  New Make Pot Still Spirit of Midleton
  • Green Spot 
  • Green Spot "Chateau Leoville Barton" (Wine Cask)
  • Redbreast "Mano a Lamh" (Sherry Cask)
  • Midleton "Barry Crockett Legacy" (Bourbon Cask)
  • Midleton "Dair Ghaelach" (Irish Oak Cask)

Midleton "Dair Ghaelach" was recently judged as one of the top three whiskeys in the world by well respected whiskey writer Jim Murray in the 2016 edition of his annual Whiskey Bible, the worlds leading whiskey guide. This whiskey is quite special indeed as it is the only whiskey in the world that has been matured in Irish oak. 

So please join us on the night to experience a whiskey and festive experience like no other:
