We are delighted to announce our August mid-month event Rye Whisky In Focus. With thanks to Fionnán O'Connor and Brian for over 18 months of planning and sourcing bottles we are now ready to schedule this event for our members; we are thrilled to bring you a unique opportunity to experience some remarkable and rare Rye Whiskey expressions.
Due to the rarity and expense of expressions included in the lineup a limited number of tickets available for this event. Therefore, we will be holding a draw to allocate tickets, this is based on previous feedback and to try to make it fair for everyone who would like to participate in this tasting when numbers are limited.
You can register your interest on the Waiting list here until Friday 6th August at 12:00 noon, of there is higher demand than spaces a draw will then take place, if successful you will be contacted to book on and settle up to secure your place. If there are spaces remaining by Friday at 12:00 noon, everyone registered will be booked on and a reminder sent out to the membership that there are spaces remaining, to be allocated on a first come first served basis.
The lineup includes six expressions:
1. Old Vandergrift Pre-Prohibition Era (Very Rare: Distilled 1917)
2. Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Bottled in Bond
3. Parker's Heritage Collection 8 Year Old Kentucky Straight Rye
4. Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye
5. Willett Family Estate 3 Year Old Straight Rye
6. Stauning Curious 2019 Danish Peat Smoked Rye Spirit
This lineup will allow us to take a Rye In Focus journey from a rare Historical Rye bottling, on to Pennsylvania Style Rye, followed by a Kentucky Style Rye, then a Canadian Pure Rye, moving on to a Vatting of Rye Mashes, finishing with an modern Experimental Global Rye expression.
The lineup includes hard to find, expensive Rye Whiskey expressions all at cask strength; the price of the tasting will be €50.00 to cover the cost of the whiskey, packaging and shipping. For anyone who can collect their pack in Dublin City Centre the cost will be €44.50; three collection options in Dublin 2 will be available to those who have settled up in advance:
Brian will be pouring and packing all the samples as well as handling collection and UPS dispatch in time for the event. There is significant effort involved for in the logistics to make this as fair as possible, provide a collection/delivery option and distribute the packs before the event, please help by settling up and collecting on time. If you choose collection please wear a mask and bring a bag to carry your pack home.
