This famous blend of whiskies was initially produced by Jameson's Master Distiller, Barry Crockett, and has been released in very limited quantities on an annual basis since 1984 right up to the current year. In 2012 when Barry Crockett retired, in his honour Irish Distillers released the acclaimed 'Barry Crockett Legacy' whiskey. In 2013, Brian Nation took over as Master Distiller and he has carried on the proud Midleton Very Rare tradition right up to the present day.
The whiskey is aged somewhere between 12 and 25 years and matured solely in Bourbon casks. Each bottle is individually numbered and carries the signature of the Master Distiller.
