METHOD AND MADNESS Rye & Malt – the first aged experimental distillate release created at the Micro Distillery in Midleton. Innovation is nothing new to Midleton, but the micro distillery has provided the copper canvas for experimentation to run free. This whiskey is the realisation of trial, and error, and brilliant bottled breakthroughs that started with “What if?
Masterfully created by our next generation of innovative whiskey makers, METHOD AND MADNESS Rye & Malt is a distillate-driven whiskey, bursting with floral notes and a spicy character. The combination of rye with malted barley brightens the whiskey’s naturally wide spectrum of flavours and aromas to evoke notes of lemon balm, white pepper, chili flakes and toasted wood with a lingering finish of spiced fruit.

"Distinct with notes of green apple. Lovely, honeyed palate, smooth with oat and sweet candy fruit. Complex but balanced and harmonious with gentle spice. A pleasing blend."
92 Points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022
"Uniquely grain-froward on the nose, with allusions to treacle, lilac, and orange peel balancing out the spicy rye. Smooth and wonderfully textured on the palate, with hints of Sichuan peppercorn, golden apple, brown butter, and toasted oak."
