Kevin O'Gorman | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Master of Maturation at Midleton Distillery.

As Head of Maturation at Midleton Distillery, Kevin’s role requires a great understanding of the wooden casks that the Irish whiskey matures in and the unique combination of flavours that can be achieved. The task of sourcing the casks used for maturing the raw spirit, smooth running of the maturation process and finally, tending to the product as it matures in the cask, is a group effort made lighter by the work of many hands, he believes.
