As it’s the month of International Women’s day we thought it would be a great time to highlight the talent of women within the Irish whiskey industry. We can’t think of a better way to honour this than tasting the great whiskey they produce from old and new distilleries across Ireland.

Tipperary Single Cask Release First Fill ex Rioja 2022

Event Booking Terms & Conditions:
W.D. O Connell are whiskey merchants and independent bottlers of premium whiskey.
We do not have a distillery and we are not trying to build one. We bottle & blend the best spirits we can find, to curate a bottle and cask library that matches our adventurous spirit.
In the bygone tradition of bottlers and bonders from the earliest days of Irish whiskey, we seek out the finest new-make and mature spirits from the best of Ireland’s distillers. We work with peated whiskey; we bottle single grains; we cherish an all-sherry cask strength release. We are happy to re-mature whiskey in a Madeira cask, and source the best Scotch whisky Islay has to offer.
After years of travelling the world earning new perspectives, the road brought us home. Burdened only with our independence and inspiration, we are here to make a whiskey that’s never the same. Whatever road you’re on, you’ll find something to love with W.D. O’Connell Whiskey Merchants.
Independent bottlers and bonders were a huge part of the Irish whiskey origin story, and we are proud to be a part of its resurgence. Every W.D. O’Connell release is steeped in the best qualities from the independent tradition: integrity in the bottle and transparency on the label.
It is not very often that we in Dingle get an opportunity to observe just how an independent whiskey bottler sources and bottles their whiskey; what inspires them to do what they do and where they get their inspiration from. This will be a unique opportinity to see at first hand what is involved in this process.
This is also the first time that we will have a tasting in Foxy John's bar on Main Street so we are really looking forward to this event and we plan to involve more bars in the town in the tastings going forward.
