METHOD AND MADNESS push the boundaries of Irish whiskey with two world-firsts

METHOD AND MADNESS whiskey

Irish whiskey brand, METHOD AND MADNESS has unveiled two new limited edition whiskeys, highlighting its growing reputation for bringing innovation, creativity and fresh thinking to the art of making whiskey.

The Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Finished in Virgin Hungarian Oak and the 28-year-old Ruby Port Pipe Single Cask Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey are the first of their kind in the world of Irish whiskey, harnessing the know-how of the masters and apprentices in Midleton Distillery.

Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Finished in Virgin Hungarian Oak has been finished in virgin oak felled in the Carpathian Mountain range in the North East of Hungary. Harvested in winter and air-dried for two years at the Kádár sawmills in Tokaj, the tight grain of this exceptional wood slowly imparts complex compounds and subtle flavours into the whiskey during the finishing process. The whiskey, a single pot still distillate, was first matured in a combination of first-fill and re-fill American oak barrels, before finishing in the virgin Hungarian oak for 11 months.

28 year old Ruby Port Pipe, which is a single pot still Irish whiskey matured initially for six years in American oak barrels, before being re-casked into a Ruby Port pipe for a further 22 years. The whiskey is alive with notes of ripe stone fruit on the nose and generous with vanilla and cinnamon on the palate, while the light pot still spices shine through on the long, satisfying finish.

METHOD AND MADNESS Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Finished in Virgin Hungarian Oak is bottled at 46% ABV and has an RRP of £78. METHOD AND MADNESS Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 28 Year Old Ruby Port Pipe Single Cask is bottled at 56.1% ABV, priced at RRP £1,665. Both products will be available at specialist retailers.
