Finished in French Limousin oak, part of an experimental series from the iconic Irish Distillers at Midleton Distillery
This is the first official release of a single malt whiskey from Irish Distillers - the producers of Redbreast and Jameson. Method and Madness reinforces Irish Distillers’ “continued commitment” to experimentation and innovation at the Midleton Distillery.
