Irish Whiskey Tasting and Gourmet Dinner Pairing

January 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm



The Dram Devotees of Bucks County will host a 5 course whiskey dinner with gourmet food pairing and four of Ireland’s finest drams.

With the holidays here and the new year almost upon us, it is a perfect time to sit down with friends and sample some fine whiskeys.  The Temperance House in Newtown is under new management and its new owner and chef have partnered with the Dram Devotees to create 5 courses to enhance and compliment the four whiskey being presented.

The whiskeys we will taste are from the Cooley distillery, an Irish whiskey distillery, located on the Cooley Peninsula in County Louth, Ireland.  Cooley distillery makes mostly single malts, differing from the more commonplace Irish blends you may be used to seeing.  (Those blends incorporate triple distilled whiskeys.)  Cooley’s whiskeys tend to appeal to the American palate, which prefers a stronger flavor profile.  Like American whiskey and scotch, their whiskey is distilled twice, which allows more flavor components to remain in the finished product.

Aaron Guldin, ambassador for Cooley’s whiskeys (Beam-Suntory) will be joining us for our tasting and discussion about their whiskeys, and will answer any questions you may have.

The gourmet pairing menu was carefully chosen by the chef and the Dram Devotees of Bucks County to highlight the qualities of each whiskey.
