Three Ultra-Rare Whiskeys Lead Charity Auction for Midleton Floods

Three Ultra-Rare Whiskeys Lead Charity Auction for Midleton Floods

A charity auction hosted by Irish Whiskey Auctions will see three very rare whiskeys from Irish Distillers’ prestige collection auctioned to raise funds for those impacted by the recent flooding in Midleton. 

Irish Distillers has donated three of the most sought-after vintages in the history of the 40 Midleton Very Rare releases to the auction as well as some bottles of Redbreast 10 year old. A bottle of Midleton Very Rare 1988, Midleton Very Rare 1989 and Midleton Very Rare 2009, will lead the charity auction, in addition to 50 bottles of the March 2021 Redbreast 10 Year Old release. 

Irish Whiskey Auctions has also contributed a number of whiskeys to the auction which opened on Wednesday 1st November and will run until Sunday 5th November.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated to Society of Saint Vincent de Paul who will distribute the funds locally to those impacted by the flooding. 

Nodjame Fouad, CEO and Chairman, Irish Distillers said: 

Our teams have seen first-hand the devastating impact of the recent flooding and we stand together with our colleagues, friends and fellow businesses in Midleton. While our distillery was unaffected by the floods, our newly redeveloped Midleton Distillery Experience was significantly damaged and is currently closed. I want to thank Irish Whiskey Auctions for organising this charity auction in support of the Midleton community. Irish Distillers is donating three of the most sought-after vintages in the history of Midleton Distillery which will go some way to help raise much-needed funds for those impacted by the flooding. We are extremely proud to be part of an incredible community in Midleton who have shown, and continue to show, immense resilience and partnership in the face of extraordinarily difficult times. As a business, we will continue to do what we can to support the community rebuild.

 Anthony and Katie Sheehy, founders of Irish Whiskey Auctions said: 

We are honoured to host such an important auction to help raise much needed funds for the families, residents and businesses affected by the recent flooding caused by Storm Babet in Midleton. The full proceeds from the exclusive whiskeys donated from the Midleton Very Rare Collection, the highly sought after Redbreast 10 Year Old release, and some of our own collection as well as our fees and commissions will all go towards helping alleviate the challenges faced by those impacted. We are happy to assist Irish Distillers on this momentous fundraising auction, and with the support of our vibrant whiskey community, we hope to help make a meaningful difference.

 The auction is now live on the Irish Whiskey Auctions website.
