Pernod Ricard has lined up two new single pot still Irish whiskeys.

Powers John’s Lane Release and Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy will join Redbreast and Green Spot in a new portfolio of single pot still Irish whiskeys produced at Irish Distillers' Midleton Distillery in Co. Cork.

Powers John’s Lane Release is named after the home of the Powers brand at John’s Lane in Dublin. Bearing a 12-year-old age statement, the whiskey has been matured in first-fill Bourbon barrels with a contribution of whiskey which has been matured in Oloroso Sherry butts.

Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy is named after the second generation master distiller, Barry Crockett. It has also been matured in first-fill Bourbon whiskeys, with the inclusion of whiskey which has matured in unseasoned American barrels.

Pernod is also looking to line up a whiskey development programme with the aim of creating and releasing regular new expressions of single pot still Irish whiskey across its brand portfolio each year.
