The Dingle chapter of the Irish Whiskey Society is preparing to welcome you all back to the town to savour the latest incarnation of the most interesting, enjoyable and groundbreaking whiskey tastings, not just in the town but the entire country! As everyone is aware, the past 18 months have been truly difficult ones but we are hoping that with things returning to a little bit of normality, we may be able to provide a little bit of light relief and entertainment.
IWS Dingle Chapter hope to have several of our industry's most affable, entertaining and knowledgeable whiskey ambassadors in the same room together and just to add a bit of craic and a further twist to the standard tasting format, they will present each other’s whiskeys blind. In other words, they will be presenting not their own brands but those of the other presenters, without knowing just what it is they are presenting.
We look forward to having them explain to us just what it is that motivates them to do what they do, what their own favourite drams are and just where they see Irish whiskey in ten or even twenty years’ time. As usual, they will be open to questions from our expert audience and there are bound to be a lot of laughs on the evening.
We may also be fortunate enough to witness Crystal Master Craftsman, Sean Daly demonstrate just how he produces those beautiful Dingle Crystal whiskey glasses.
