Need a last little something to finish off your drinks cart for Christmas? We're giving away a beautiful bottle of Method and Madness Gin, as well as a Christmas wreath to get you in the spirit
Is there anything better than being settled on the couch with a perfectly made cocktail at Christmas? The fire on, a good film on the telly, and a smooth drink to take the edge off the stress of cooking the turkey — bliss.
It's no secret that the Irish know how to create beautiful drinks, and our latest favourite is no different. Method and Madness Gin, a micro-distilled spirit hailing from Co. Cork, was made to be different — from its eclectic ingredients to its unusual bottle.
The bottle itself is shaped like an octagon, and was designed by an Irish couple, Matthew Bolger and his wife Emelie Lidström, who hails from Sweden.
Together, Matthew and Emelie run a design studio from Malmo, called M&E. Speaking about creating a unique design for the Method and Madness bottle, they said, “The juxtaposition between the two themes was a very interesting starting point. We wanted to make a bottle that celebrates the liquid and the process behind it.
“In particular we drew great inspiration from the casks, and wanted to reflect the craft that goes into them in the design of the bottle. We wanted to create a bottle with a touch of minimalism and a slight laboratory influence.”
The gin itself is distilled with 16 botanicals, led by black lemon and Irish gorse flower, the drink has premium notes of citrus and spice. And if, like us, your mouth is already watering, you're in luck — we're giving away a bottle of Method and Madness. And, especially for the Christmas season, we're also giving away a beautiful Christmas wreath, to make your home even more inviting this year.
