Event description

Description

Join us, along with the expert team from Irish Distillers, for a special evening of whiskey tastings, cooperage demonstrations, great food and special music.

You are invited to arrive at 5 pm to our traditional country pub where John Ryan of Irish Distillers will be on hand to guide you through a very special evening of whiskey tasting, which will include: Jameson Caskmates IPA edition, Jameson Black Barrell and Green Spot.

Then, once you're nicely warmed up, you will be treated to a cooperage demonstration by Irish Distillers Master Cooper, Ger Buckley. Ger is a fifth generation Midleton Cooper and a true craftsman in the purest sense of the word. He will demonstrate the intricacies of the whiskey barrell as well as show us some of the tools and methods of the age old craft of cooperage. Ger is proud to tell you that "50% of a whiskey's taste comes from the wood, so that the wood and distillation process have an equal effect on the taste". To prove this point, Ger will then take us through a tasting of his own creation - the Coopers Croze from the Whiskey Makers series.

After the demonstration, enjoy a BBQ in our beergarden showcasing the best of our local suppliers from the Old Butter Roads. You will be treated to the best of local Sliabh Luachra music to keep the festival vibe swinging!
