Fancy a weekend in the Sunny South-East? On Friday, March 7th, we’ll be taking a liquid field trip to Wexford, a city and county loaded with the artifacts of its own rich whiskey history. From Edermine House, the ancestral estate of the Powers family, to the ruins of Nicholas Devereux’s Bishop’s Water distillery, to the largely forgotten site where John Jameson’s younger relation Andrew Jameson once built a distillery, we’ll be taking a ramble through the past with a selection of locally relevant tipples and the insightful guidance of our very own Wexfordian whiskey-phile, Willie Murphy. Equidistant between Dublin and Cork, we hope this may also be an opportunity for interested tipplers from our society’s two chapters to meet and mingle at the Wren's Nest pub in the Wexford middle.
“Pot Still Will” has been hard at work preparing a line up of peculiar trips, peculiar tales, and even more peculiar tipples for the weekend, as well as accommodation details for anyone interested in fording Wexford’s liquid history!
1. Blantons Special Reserve
2. Frysk Hynder Single Malt
3. Cárn Mór 1973 Single Barrel
This came from the northern distillery which closed in 1980.
Very old and probably the worse for it. Opened well with water.
