Small Batch Whiskeys
Green spot & yellow spot single pot still whiskeys
Green spot is produced exclusively for Mitchell & Son of Dublin at Midleton Distillery in Cork, Ireland. Green spot is a single pot still whiskey that was described by Jim Murray, whiskey writer, for being “undoubtedly one of the world’s great great whiskeys.” Green spot is one of few bonded Irish whiskeys that are remaining, along with Yellow spot, one of the older bottling. The Yellow spot is one of two whiskeys that are exclusively sold and produced in Ireland by an independent wine merchant.
Lambay Small Batch Blend
Lambay Small Batch Blend is either excellent for cocktails or just on the rocks. It is a whiskey blend of malted and grain whiskey that is then matured in bourbon barrels that leaves a nice cognac cask finish. Lambay Small Batch Blend is amazingly smooth, with tones of flora, pepper, cracked almonds and malt and with a finish of a cognac cask, its characteristics are as uncommon as the island. This whiskey is triple distilled that contains Lambay Island Trinity Well water. The colour is oak brown and has an aroma of a floral fragrance mixed with citrus and some lingering spices. The finish of this whiskey is that of a lingering sweetness and some spiciness.
Dublin Liberties is a new Irish Whiskey distillery that opened its doors in the summer of 2018 along with Dubliner Irish Whiskeys. They have had a fantastic start off by the Dubliner Irish whiskey becoming the fastest growing whiskey of the year. The Master Distiller, Darryl McNally, has been a Master Distiller for 18 years, working in Diageo and Pernod, as well as Bushmills.
Method and Madness
Method and Madness is a brand that focuses on spirits that come from the mind of the Masters and Apprentices of Midleton Distillery. Their foundation of shared knowledge is quite exclusive to Midleton. An example of this would be the 28 year old single pot still limited editon. This whiskey was made 28 years ago when they theoretically thought that putting together single pot still and a single ruby port pipe would harmonise over a specific amount of time. The theory has been confirmed says an Apprentice Distiller at Midleton Distillery. The 28 year old is made up of 6 years of maturation of single pot still irish whiskey in bourbon barrels. Then this is recasked in a ruby port cask for another 22 years. It tastes of vanilla and cinnamon port wne and barley grains.
