At Whiskey Live Dublin visitors will have the unique opportunity to sample some of the greatest whiskies in the world including Irish, Scottish, American & Japanese whilst mingling with the producers and distillers. This year one of the world’s best cocktail bartenders, Jack McGarry from The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog in New York will be there as special guest to host two master classes. McGarry was honoured with the prestigious title of Tales of the Cocktail International Bartender of the Year 2013. Joining him will be some of the capital’s best cocktail mixologists, who will be serving up samples of delicious Irish whiskey cocktails.
A number of leading Dublin restaurants including Etto, Koh and L Mulligan Grocer, will prepare some bite size dishes to complement some of the whiskies and Cocoa Atelier will present four whiskey and chocolate pairings. Whiskey master classes will run throughout the day and a number of the new Irish distillers will be there talking about their plans for the future and sampling their poitins & gins. There will also be a number of craft beers that have been aged in whiskey barrels.
Organiser Ally Alpine of the Celtic Whiskey Shop said, “This is the fourth year of Whiskey Live Dublin, an event that has grown in popularity year on year. All whiskeyphiles are welcome to sample popular and unusual whiskeys as well as some lovely pairings of whiskeys and gourmet dishes. The weekend coincides with the Irish Whiskey Awards, which take place earlier during the week, so many award winners, and gold medal winners will be in attendance at the event. Every year there are new whiskeys to discover as the industry is really exploding in Ireland.”
