The Method and Madness Rye & Malt Irish Whiskey is an exceptional Blended whiskey that showcases the innovative spirit of Midleton Distillery. Crafted from a unique blend of 60% rye and 40% malted barley, this whiskey represents a bold departure from traditional Irish whiskey recipes. The distillation process involves double-distilling the mash to achieve a crisp and spicy flavour profile that is both distinctive and memorable.

The whiskey is aged in ex-bourbon American oak barrels, which impart rich and complex flavours to the spirit. This maturation process enhances the natural characteristics of the rye and malted barley, resulting in a whiskey that is both vibrant and sophisticated. Bottled at 46% ABV, this non-chill filtered whiskey retains its full-bodied texture and depth of flavour.

Producer History

Midleton Distillery, located in Midleton, Cork, is one of the most prestigious distilleries in Ireland. Established in 1825, Midleton has a long and storied history of producing some of the finest Irish whiskey in the world. The distillery is renowned for its commitment to quality and innovation, continuously pushing the boundaries of what Irish whiskey can be.

The Method and Madness range was conceived as a way to explore new and exciting possibilities in whiskey making. The micro-distillery at Midleton serves as a "copper canvas" for experimentation, allowing the distillers to explore unique mash bills, cask finishes, and distillation techniques. This adventurous spirit is embodied in every bottle of Method and Madness whiskey, making it a standout among Irish whiskey brands.

Food Pairings

Serving and Cocktail Suggestions

While this whiskey is exceptional on its own, it also shines in cocktails. Use it as the base for a classic Old Fashioned, where its spicy character can stand up to the bitters and sugar. Alternatively, mix it with ginger ale and a twist of lime for a refreshing highball. For a more adventurous cocktail, try a Rye & Malt Manhattan, combining the whiskey with sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters.
