Pernod Ricard’s Irish Distillers unit has added a further expression to its Method and Madness Irish whiskey portfolio.
Mulberry Wood, announced today, is a single pot-distilled whiskey that has been finished in 50-litre white mulberry casks – a world first, according to the company. The limited-edition whiskey was first aged in a combination of first-fill and re-fill American Oak barrels.
“With its unusual wood structure and small cask size, there’s no doubt that mulberry wood presented its challenges, with early trials failing,” said Irish Distillers’ maturation research & innovation technologist, Anna Lazaridou. “But, our … dedication to trial and error has produced a beautifully-balanced whiskey”.
