Cork Irish Gin: where?

My dad was an inspired amateur bartender, and took particular care in refining his martini recipe. After a number of years of using Beefeater gin, he changed to Cork Irish Gin, and used it for the rest of his life. He was very enthusiastic about the flavor of Cork Gin.

It's been more than 20 years since his passing, and I have tried to reconstruct some of his favorite potables. I have had zero success in finding Cork Gin in liquor stores or US internet vendors.

Can anybody suggest where I might find the stuff? Or, alternatively, is there a gin expert in the house who can suggest another gin with a flavor closely similar to Cork?
