Irish Distillers Whiskey Masterclass – METHOD & MADNESS

Sunday at 14:30
Venue: Random Restaurant

METHOD AND MADNESS is a whiskey brand hatched from the minds of the Masters & Apprentices of Midleton Distillery. Their foundation of shared knowledge is unique to Midleton.
When great minds collide, incredible creations can emerge. At Midleton, the Master & Apprentice relationship runs deep, with generations of know how meshing with restless curiosity. There will be trial, error & brilliant bottled breakthroughs that start with “What if?” Restless hearts making inspired spirits. Innovation is nothing new to Midleton, but the new microdistillery has provided the copper canvas for experimentation to run free. The whiskeys coming out of this distillers’ playground provide a new taste for Irish whiskey history.
