Ireland’s inaugural Whiskey Week, a celebration of one of Ireland’s most celebrated and successful products, has been launched by representatives of three of the country’s leading distilleries – Irish Distillers, Grants and Cooley Distillery. Running from the 21-26 May and launched in conjunction with Whiskey Live Dublin, Whiskey Week will feature bespoke events at the country’s leading distilleries as well as whiskey pubs and hotels around the country. 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.
