    Brian has put together a special line up for this year's president's tasting, selecting some memorable whiskeys and combing some older & newer releases of expressions enjoyed during his term, we hope you can join us on Thursday 2nd Dec 2021. 

    The whiskey lineup includes:

    Pot Still Irish Whiskey bottled for Mitchell & Son Wine and Spirit Merchants.

    3. The Flintlock No. 3:  15 Year Single Malt (46% ABV.)
    Bottled by J.J. Corry Whiskey Bonder, six Irish Malt casks married in a Moscatel Sherry Butt.

    4. Killbeggan Small Batch Rye (43% ABV.)
    Irish Whiskey distilled from a mash bill of Malted Barley, Unmalted Barley and Rye grains.

    Blended Irish Whiskey, Triple Distilled Single Pot Still & Single Malt, ex-Bourbon casks. 

    We will also be including a Craft Cocktail Whiskey Cocktail from Bar 1661; you can select one from this line up including their special holiday edition 'Festive Old Fashioned':

    • Festive Old Fashioned. The Festive Old Fashioned is a slow winter sipper, made using Bullit Bourbon and seasonal flavours of fig, caramel, orange spiced bitters and a dash of PX sherry.
    • Old Fashioned. Made to its classic recipe dating back nearly 200 years, there has never been a cocktail with such a fitting name: The Old Fashioned. American whiskey, sugar and bitters - nothing more, nothing less.
    • Banana Old Fashioned. A tropical twist on everyone's favourite whiskey cocktail, the Banana Old Fashioned has a Caribbean feel with some overproof rum, banana liqueur and chocolate bitters, all swimming in Bulleit Rye Whiskey.
    • Whiskey Sour. The Whiskey Sour is part of a large family of drinks made by mixing lemon, sugar and bitters to your favourite spirit. The original recipe has been tweaked by using Bulleit Bourbon blended with Roe and Co Irish Whiskey and leaving the egg white out. 

    Booking open. Please ensure to complete your Full Address and Eircode / Postcode correctly to receive your sample pack. 

        Samples can only be shipped within the Island of Ireland (North & South) to Members of the Society.

        This event is being held to commemorate our dear friend and supporter Mary Ferriter who sadly passed away one year ago. We all knew Mary and how considerate, kind and generous she was. She was a terrific supporter of the Irish Whiskey Society and its chapter in the town and was delighted to have such an organisation here on her doorstep in Dingle. In the event that she could not attend a tasting, she always purchased 2 tickets for the lads with whom she worked. She also sent her husband P.J. along in her stead. 

        Some of her family will also be in attendance. 

        Graham Coull will present an excellent repertoire of the Dingle spirit on the evening and there are bound to be some amazing whiskeys to be imbibed so get booking as everyone will want to pay tribute to Mary's memory.

        There will be a bus provided to bring attendees to the event in the warehouse and back to Dingle town afterwards and this will leave John Bennys pub on Strand Street at 19.15 

        Masks will be worn on the bus, attendees may also arrange a lift to and from the event for themselves should they choose. However, attendees are requested to not bring a vehicle and leave this overnight as they will not be able to get their car back with the warehouse closed for the weekend. As the warehouse is a Seveso site, members are also advised that there will be no smoking allowed on the premises at any time. As per previous tastings, Covid certs will be checked upon arrival.

        We are doing this to safeguard everybody's health and would be grateful for your cooperation for this event. Should you desire, you may also bring your own tasting glass to this tasting.

        We respectfully request that everyone adheres to all of the Government and other guidelines in place, and any updated ones at the time of the event.

        If you feel unwell stay at home, you will receive a refund on request.
