Single Pot Still

The world’s first Irish Whiskey to be finished in Hungarian Oak. From Method and Madness in Midleton Distillery comes an Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey matured in first fill and refill American oak barrels and then finished in Virgin Hungarian oak barrels.

Notes from the Distillery:

“In a world first for Irish whiskey, METHOD AND MADNESS Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Finished in Virgin Hungarian Oak has been finished in virgin oak felled in the Carpathian Mountain range in the North East of Hungary, where volcanic soils are best suited to the growing of Quercus Petraea. Harvested in winter and air-dried for two years at the Kádár Kádár sawmills in Tokaj, the tight grain of this exceptional wood slowly imparts complex compounds and subtle flavours into the whiskey during the finishing process. The whiskey, a single pot still distillate, was first matured in a combination of first-fill and re-fill American oak barrels, before finishing in the virgin Hungarian oak for 11 months”.
