Activity will include whiskey showcase events, tastings, food pairings, promotions and much more.

The week commences with a unique tasting session of the Jameson range in the Old Jameson Distillery led by master distiller Liam Donegan. Patrons will be given the opportunity to sample the original Jameson range through to the Rarest Vintage Reserve.

Other events throughout the week include specially commissioned tours of the Kilbeggan Distillery, the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, which will run daily throughout the week to provide an insight into the people and processes behind the 250 year old brand.
