All About The Grain - Irish Grain Whiskey Tasting

IWS Online LiveStream 

We are delighted to announce our November Online tasting, which focuses on Irish Grain whiskeys . This virtual tasting will feature guests Louise McGuane, Jennifer Nickerson, Alex Chasko, Yiorgos Manesis and Leo Phelan, moderated by Fionnán O'Connor. The event will take place on Thursday the 26th of November at 7.30pm.

The silent partner in most of the world's major Scotch and Irish blends, grain whiskey is the lightest of Ireland's traditional whiskey styles, distilled in column stills typically to high ABV purity levels, producing a lighter, sweeter distillate than its more robust malt and pot still cousins. Often underappreciated and still typically produced as a blending component, 'single grain' expressions have nevertheless slowly gained stature as a stand-alone category and Ireland in 2020 may very well be leading the way on this frontier. We're delighted our members will get to join this special tasting, which will showcase grain expressions from multiple producers across Irish distilling.
