Midleton Masters Return to Dingle

For our May tasting, IWS Dingle are both delighted & privileged to welcome back the Midleton Masters: Kevin O Gorman, Master Distiller; Ger Buckley, 5th Generation Midleton Master Cooper; Dave McCabe Midleton Blender and Ireland's legendary whiskey Icon, Ger Garland to the town. 

We say privileged because it is only possible to get these legends together on just a very few occasions during the year and for us to be able to welcome them all back to Dingle after the Covid enforced break is extremely fortunate indeed. Each will explain just how Midleton make their precious whiskey and Ger Buckley will disassemble and assemble a cask for us, using the tools handed down to him by his predecessors. This event generated huge interest in Dick Macks yard in previous years and given that Ger may consider retirement over the next few years, this is a rare opportunity indeed for us to witness a cask deconstruction a second time.

We will also get a unique opportunity to sample some whiskeys which we may never get to taste again. There will be some very cracking whiskeys to be imbibed including some amazing cask samples which will be truly special and perhaps an idea of what Irish Distillers have coming down the line!!! 

We are very grateful to the management & staff of Paul Geaneys Pub, Main Street, Dingle, where the evening will begin with the cask demonstration by Ger Buckley at the rear of the pub at 7:00pm (this part of the evening is free to all). The tasting will take place after this at the same venue, please register to ensure you have a ticket booked for the tasting.

We cannot implore you all enough to get booking asap as this event will sell out in record time.  This will be a very special evening indeed.

NB. No cash accepted on the night, please book your ticket using the link provided.
