We all have a favorite alcohol that is an ingredient in our go-to drink.

For those reading this and are big whiskey drinkers, we have something just for you. The Midleton Distillery in Ireland’s County Cork is currently selling full barrels of their booze.

Thinking to yourself “well, sign me up”? Well, there is one catch. You have to be a part of their Cask Circle program. This private club is by membership only and allows you to try entire casks of “Very Rare Irish Whiskey” says Supercall. As you can imagine, the barrels of alcohol do not come cheap. First and second-fill bourbon, rum, port and Malaga cake can cost between $87,000 to $524,000.

Those folks with spare cash to gift themselves with the pricey product can expect a series of other perks. Customers who buy a barrel can also vest the distillery, customize their own bottle, and are allowed to meet and talk with master distiller Brian Nation.

But wait, there’s more! According to Supercall, you will also be given access to “distillery concierge who can set [you] up with everything from dinner at the new distillery dining room to clay pigeon shooting nearby.”

Whiskey lovers and fans of the distillery are currently going crazy over this deal. Believe it or not, there have been four barrels sells already! The distillery is planning on only releasing 32 barrels in order to “keep the program small” says Midelton brand manager Jayne Murphy.” So, if you have the money and are interested in the program, we recommend purchasing this limited edition deal as soon as possible!

To join or learn more information about the Cask Circle, e-mail concierge@midletonveryrarecaskcircle.com.

For those Americans, heading back and forth to Ireland can also add to the already hefty sum. If you are not prepared for the commitment, you can always purchase a single bottle!
