Midleton Silent Distillery Chapter Two in charity auction
Midleton Silent Distillery Chapter Two|Lot 272 has a reserve of €40,000.
Launched in May 2021 and limited to just 70 bottles worldwide, it’s a Single Pot Still whiskey aged over 46 years. It captures the traditional signature style of the Old Midleton Distillery originally curated by Max Crockett.
On its journey this treasure has passed through many maturation stages including Bourbon, Sherry and Port casks, before finally maturing in a third-fill Bourbon cask.
Its guardianship has passed from Master Distiller to Master Distiller until finally Kevin O’ Gorman saw this unique Irish whiskey reach the peak of its perfection.
All profits (over the cost price) will be donated to Down Syndrome Dublin.
The October Auction ends sometime after 8pm on the evening of November 8th.
Celtic Whiskey Auction is founded by the Celtic Whiskey Shop on Dawson Street in Dublin City Centre which has an allocation of one bottle of this rare Irish whiskey and is auctioning it through its online platform rather than selling it in-store in the hope of raising much-needed funds for one of its charity partners Down Syndrome Dublin.
“We’ve worked closely with Down Syndrome Dublin for many years now as the charity partner of our event Whiskey Live Dublin” said owner Ally Alpine, founder of the Celtic Whiskey brand, “but sadly due to Covid-19 the event could not take place.
“Therefore, we hope that any funds raised from this very special bottle of Midleton will help to make up for this.”
Founded by the Celtic Whiskey Shop, Celtic Whiskey Auction was launched in November 2018 and runs one of the largest monthly whiskey and spirits auctions in Ireland featuring predominantly Irish whiskey while promising plenty of rare, collectable and unusual bottlings.
This is not the first time that Celtic Whiskey Auction has teamed-up with Irish Distillers for a charity bottling. In July 2020, Bottle Number 1 of Redbreast Dream Cask 28 Year-Old Ruby Port Cask was auctioned in aid of Mary’s Meals, raising funds to feed children in impoverished parts of the world.
