Embark on a Sensory Voyage to Sip Irish Distillers’ New Method and Madness Gin

This April, take a sensory voyage like no other, and enjoy the first sip of Irish Distillers’ new premium gin, METHOD AND MADNESS Irish Micro Distilled Gin, on board a vessel where art and science will intersect, for a completely unique and exclusive experience. Taking place on Thursday 4th, Friday 5th and Saturday 6th April, on Mespil Road, there are only 20 places available each evening. Tickets are priced at €25 and available from HERE.

METHOD AND MADNESS Irish Micro Distilled Gin is micro distilled with 16 balanced botanicals, led by black lemon and wild Irish gorse flower. On board, guests will enjoy an immersive tasting experience, with eclectic food bites, entertainment by DJ Sally Foran, a light installation show and more. There are two sittings for guests on Thursday and Friday at 7pm and 9pm. There are three sittings on Saturday, at 5pm, 7pm and 9pm.

METHOD AND MADNESS Gin is the result of an exploration into historic gin recipes from 1798, which have been preserved at Midleton Distillery, and months of research into how botanicals work together to create unique flavours in gin. Overseen by Master Distiller, Brian Nation, and Apprentice Distiller, Henry Donnelly, the gin has been distilled in ‘Mickey’s Belly’, Ireland’s oldest gin still first commissioned in 1958, at the Micro Distillery, Midleton. Bringing together the experience and expertise of Midleton’s Masters and Apprentices, METHOD AND MADNESS Gin is bursting with citrus, spice and a hint of ‘What if?’

First unveiled in February 2017, METHOD AND MADNESS aims to harness the creativity of Midleton’s whiskey masters through the fresh talent of its apprentices. Taking inspiration from the famous Shakespearean quote, ‘Though this be madness, yet there is method in ’t’, METHOD AND MADNESS is designed to reflect a next generation Irish spirit brand with a measure of curiosity and intrigue (MADNESS), while honouring the tradition and expertise grounded in the generations of expertise at the Midleton Distillery (METHOD).
