There’s a riot of wood in Courtney’s. It seems like every shade of Irish tree has been incorporated into the floors, walls and furniture, while the bog oak hanging in chains above the fire remains a hostage to the day the fuel runs out. In a town as tourist friendly as Killarney, it’s refreshing to find a bar so fixed on locals but visitors can also enjoy the large Whiskey and Beer offering.
A Classic Pint of Guinness matched with a Chestnut Cask Finished Single Pot Still from the Method & Madness Range.
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.
