The Silent Distillery Whiskey Tasting Experience

The Silent Distillery Whiskey Tasting Experience takes place at Adare Manor on Saturday, November 29th, commencing at 6pm with a champagne and canape reception for the intimate group, who will be joined by Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman and Ger Garland of Pernod-Ricard. Specially selected wines from the Adare Manor cellar will accompany a private five-course set dining experience with a menu specifically designed for the evening by Michelin star chef, Mike Tweedie. Following which the group will adjourn to The Cellar for the guided tasting by Kevin O’Gorman, where he will personally take guests through the intricacies of this highly rare whiskey, Silent Distillery Chapter Three. Guests will also be able to take part in an auction to purchase a miniature 50ml bottle of Silent Distillery Chapter Three, should they wish to, with all proceeds from the auction going to charity.

The following morning the group will reconvene for a hearty breakfast, with time to discuss the events of the previous evening, before enjoying their choice of one estate activity, selecting from a round of golf, a game of padel tennis or a spa treatment, subject to availability.

The Midleton Very Rate Silent Distillery Collection honours the very last drops of this inimitable spirit before the old distillery went silent forever. A ‘silent’ distillery is one that has closed its doors and been lost to ages past, achieving almost mythical status. As rumours of this ‘unicorn’ whiskey swirl around the whiskey world, these precious bottlings have become highly sought after by whiskey enthusiasts. A traditional distillery, Old Midleton Distillery was famous throughout the world for Irish whiskey, but when it closed its doors for the last time in 1975, it became an iconic part of Irish distilling legend.

While other silent distilleries have re-opened and been brought back to life, Old Midleton has been fully decommissioned and will never produce again. Midleton Very Rare Silent Distillery Chapter One will be the first official release from Old Midleton Distillery in 16 years and the collection represents some of the last drops of this inimitable spirit before the distillery closed its doors forever.

The Silent Distillery Whiskey Tasting Experience at Adare Manor includes a welcome champagne and canape reception, dinner and wine, one ticket to the exclusive whiskey tasting event in The Cellar, an overnight stay including breakfast and an estate activity (choosing from golf, padel or spa treatment, subject to availability). This unique experience is limited to thirteen places, but attendees may bring a guest to join them sharing the same room, and partaking in dinner, breakfast and an activity at an additional fee.
