Irish Whiskeys are the seeing the largest growth in the world right now! Lighter and more delicate than most whiskeys (they’ve been distilled three times instead of the usual 2 times) they cater to a variety of tastes, especially the American consumer. Anyone interested in tasting whiskey would be remiss if they did not approach Irish whiskey with enthusiasm. With few exceptions, Irish whiskey is unpeated and made with a combination of malted and unmalted barley. The traditional pot still style is alive and well in Ireland.
Let’s taste some delicious Irish Whiskeys!
1. Powers Irish Whiskey
2. Jameson’s Caskmates
3. Green Spot
4. Redbreast 12 year old
We will discuss each individual bottling and the distinctive qualities in these whiskeys. Ireland holds the distinction of being the original home of whiskey before moving on to England and then to Scotland. Irish whiskey has had a tough time recovering from its losses of both distilleries and production, but now is the fastest growing segment of the whiskey industry. The return of brands and pot still crafted whiskeys is a welcome one.
Bill Helfferrich will be our special guest from Pernod Ricard, and he will be joining us in our discussions and tasting.
We will be tasting our Irish whiskeys at Nektar Wine and Whisky Bar in New Hope, PA. It is a fairly new location with beautiful views of the Aquatong Creek and the Delaware River beyond! It is a wonderful spot to meet for drinks right in the heart of New Hope. They will provide cheeses and small plates to compliment our drams.
Each attendee will receive a free gift with ticket purchase! Come out and join us! Tickets are $45 per person.
