What you'll do

Whiskey in the Irish Language is called 'Usice Betha' (pronounced: iiska Baha) which means 'The Water of Life', so lets breath some life into your evening and join me for An Introduction to Irish Whiskey.
Discover the history and the evolution of this beautiful spirit, how it is interwoven into fabric of Irish Heritage and Personality and it's importance to Irish Culture.
This is an interactive experience, so as we will learn about 3 different styles of Irish Whiskey that I will be sampling, we will discuss the Irish Whiskey you are enjoying and suggestions for whiskey for you to try in the future.
So grab a glass, pour some of your favorite Irish Whiskey and join me for an hour of Irish Culture, History, Craic & of course, Whiskey!

Fantastic. Might as well been in a proper Irish pub, if there is something like that. John is a wonderful host and quite knowledgeable. A wonderful afternoon.
