Welcome to the Irish Whiskey Society

We exist to promote the sensible enjoyment of Irish whiskey, Ireland's indigenous spirit, and to introduce Irish whiskey fans to the whiskeys of the world.

Ireland is the home of whiskey. The global spirit was first created here in Ireland, and is now distilled and enjoyed all over the world.

But we believe there is something extra-special about Irish whiskey in its many varieties, and we are passionate about fostering an appreciation of this traditional Irish spirit, celebrating Ireland's distilling heritage and savouring the finest whiskeys from Ireland and throughout the world in a friendly and casual environment.

Wherever you are in the world, you're very welcome to join us in our forum, where we discuss all matters whiskey-related.

And please sign up for our regular newsletter (using the box below), where we will keep you informed of all the latest developments in Irish whiskey, news about the society and details on our latest tastings.

And if you're in Ireland, we would love to welcome you along to one of our tastings, which generally take place in Dublin each month. In future, we hope to host tastings in other locations throughout Ireland.

Members of the society enjoy extra privileges, including priority booking for our tastings and the chance to purchase our extremely limited edition bottlings of Irish whiskey.


So whether you're a discerning aficionado of whiskey, or simply partial to the occasional sup, we'd like to offer you a traditional céad míle fáilte to the Irish Whiskey Society.
 
Sláinte!
