This week's WhiskyCast comes from Ireland, where Irish Distillers debuted the new Method And Madness range of Irish Whiskies the other night. The name comes from the collaboration between Midleton Distillery's veteran whiskey masters and their apprentices...and it also gives us a chance to catch up with Killian O'Mahony! We first met Killian in September of 2013 as he was just beginning his apprenticeship to become Ireland's first new cooper in decades under Midleton Master Cooper Ger Buckley. Now, Killian's apprenticeship is almost complete...and later this year, he'll go through the traditional "trussing" ceremony that marks the completion of his apprenticeship. We'll hear from Killian and Ger on this week's WhiskyCast In-Depth...and find out more about the Method And Madness range from Midleton's Kevin O'Gorman.
There's also a hint of what's to come in the next few days when the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin reopens after months of renovations - and gets a new name in the process. We'll also talk with the publishers of two new whisky magazines based in Dublin and catch up on the rest of the week's whisky news.

Just got back from Ireland, and will have all of the highlights on this weekend's WhiskyCast!
By the way, if you're anywhere near Boston, you should check out the annual Go Whisk(e)y Weekend at Julio's Liquors in Westborough, Mass. this weekend! Wish I could have made it up there this weekend, but the trip to Ireland made that impossible. Will try to get there next year!
