Special Tasting Series: Lost Mash Bills
A Tasting of Historic Pot Still New Make with Blackwater Distillery

When looking back at the history of distilling in Ireland a mash of malted barley, unmalted barley and other cereals grown in Ireland were used to produce Pot Still Irish Whisk(e)y.

We are delighted to be have the opportunity to sample new make from mash bills which date between 1838 and 2014, a comprehensive attempt at understanding the heritage of Pot Still Irish Whisk(e)y.

We will be joined by Blackwater Distillery's CEO Peter Mulryan  and John Wilcox, Master Distiller who will both guide us though the various expressions on the evening.

This will be a very special evening, an opportunity to experience new make spirit derived from historical mash bills with a wide range of grains used:

  • malted barley
  • raw (unmalted) barley
  • oats
  • rye
  • wheat

Join us to discover what each of these various grains bring to the distillate and their influence on the traditional expressions of Pot Still  when Irish Whisk(e)y was celebrated around the world before the era of modern technical files.

We will also be presented with an update on Backwater Distillery's Irish Whisky production, more to be shared on the night itself. 

Spaces are limited so we would advise you to book on so as not to miss out on this opportunity to taste some history.
