Since March 2016, Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder has been home to Ireland’s largest whiskey collection, with over 1200 whiskeys from Ireland and beyond; as well as a range of over 60 Irish craft gins, as extensive — and directly sourced — wine list and 12 craft beer taps. Bespoke cocktails also take pride of place, each individually designed by resident mixologists.

METHOD AND MADNESS is a spirit brand hatched from the minds of the Masters and Apprentices of Midleton Distillery. Our foundation of shared knowledge is unique to Midleton. When great minds collide, incredible creations can emerge. At Midleton, our Master and Apprentice relationship runs deep, with generations of know how meshing with restless curiosity. There will be trial, and error, and 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 from Irish whiskey history.
A Single Pot Still whiskey aged in chestnut casks, a combination of what we’ve always done in Midleton and what we’ve never tried before. It’s not often we stray from the traditional oak, but one sip suggests it was well worth the deviation.
