The world of whisky is complex and varied and one of the easiest way to get to know it is to come along to one of our regular whisky tastings. Our tastings vary from distillery focused evening, food pairings, vintage selections, world whiskies and many more. These are fun educational and social events where everyone is welcome. We conduct tastings the length and breath of the country on request, they are targeted at people who have a genuine interest in tasting - if your are organizing/hosting an event and would like to discuss your requirements please do get in touch with us.
Our tastings are incredibly popular so if you do see an event coming up that interest you, it does pay to book up early to avoid disappointment.

St Patrick's Day
There can be no doubt that at the beginning of the 19th century Ireland was considered a global powerhouse when it came to distilling. It was home to two of the largest distilleries in the world producing highly sought after spirits. Sadly the years were not kind to the Irish Whisk(e)y industry and by the 1960s only three Irish Distilleries remained. The past decade however has seen a complete revitalisation of the whisk(e)y industry in Ireland with old brands being brought back to life and new distilleries being born. There are some incredibly exciting and innovative whiskies coming out of The Emerald Isle and we are very much looking forward to sharing them with you at our St Patrick's Day tasting. We hope you can join us!
