Pernod Ricard's Irish Distillers division is poised to release the second in the 'Very Rare Silent Distillery' series of ultra-high-end expressions from its Midleton Irish whiskey brand.

Chapter Two, which has been aged for 46 years, comprises whiskey that was matured for around 20 years in several Sherry and Bourbon casks, then moved to refill Bourbon casks. The liquid was then moved to Port pipes before concluding its ageing in a single refill Bourbon cask.

Only 70 numbered bottles will be available, with the decanter produced by Waterford Crystal in Ireland.

The series, which debuted last year, will be made up of six iterations, launched annually to 2025, all of which were distilled in the Old Midleton Distillery in Ireland before it ceased production in 1975.

The site is now used as the visitors centre at Irish Distillers' Midleton facility, home to Pernod's flagship Jameson brand.

In nine-month group sales, announced last week, Pernod noted that Jameson had started to show a "softer" performance in the US.
