    IWS Mid-Month Event

    Rye Whiskey In Focus

    Thursday 12th August 2021 at 7:30pm IST

    IWS Online LiveStream 

    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.

    This lineup will allow us to take a Rye Whiskey In Focus journey from a rare pre-Prohibition era 1917 distilled Historical US Rye bottling, to Pennsylvania Style Rye, followed by a Kentucky Style Rye, then a Canadian Pure Rye, moving on to a vatted Rye, finishing with an modern experimental Global Rye expression.

    Due to the rarity and expense of expressions included in the lineup a limited number of tickets are 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 a tasting when numbers are limited. 

    Please register your interest on the Waiting list now. It will be open until Friday 6th August at 12:00 noon. If there is higher demand than spaces available a draw will then take place, if successful you will be contacted to settle up to secure your booking. 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

    The lineup includes hard to find, expensive Rye Whiskey expressions; the price of the tasting will be €50.00 to cover the cost of the whiskey, packaging and shipping (on the island of Ireland only). For anyone who can collect their pack in Dublin City Centre the cost is €44.50; three collection options in Dublin 2 will be available to those who have settled up in advance:

    • Saturday 7th (morning 10:00-12:00 afternoon 14:00-16:00)
    • Sunday 8th (afternoon 12:00-15:00) 
    • Monday 9th (morning 10:00-12:00 & afternoon 16:00-18:00)

    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.

    Everyone who is offered a space will need to settle up to secure their booking before collection (in Dublin 2) or shipping dispatch (on the island of Ireland only). If you don't settle up before 10:00am Mon 10th Aug your space will be offered to another member interested in attending the event. Payment via PayPal to secure your booking. Please read the Terms & Conditions: https://www.irishwhiskeysociety.com/Virtual-tasting-terms-conditions/

    The event LiveStream will begin at 7:30pm on Thursday 12th August and is for members only. You will receive a link to the live stream in advance of the tasting. Make sure you are ready with your whiskey tasting glass(es), water and think about any questions you might like to ask on the night or you can email them in beforehand to: info@irishwhiskeysociety.com

    Looking forward to seeing you on the night,

    Sláinte,

    Brian.
