This will see Éamonn join Bushmills to host a series of hands-on whiskey and woodcarving workshops in Dublin and Belfast this Summer.
Since establishing his company ‘Hewn’ in 2014, Éamonn has been on a journey of exploration, creating wooden homeware from fallen Irish trees using self-taught traditional woodcarving techniques.
‘Black Bush Carved’ brings together the worlds of Irish whiskey and creative woodworking in Dublin’s Drury Buildings on 23rd and 24th July and in Belfast’s Cow Bay on 30th and 31st July where guests will experience a whiskey-tasting led by the Bushmills Brand Ambassador before hearing Éamonn’s story on how he honed his passion and craft to build a career in woodwork.
Attendees will then have the chance to try their hand at woodcarving their own whiskey accessory to take home. Specially-created Black Bush drinks will also be served throughout the event.
As part of the collaboration Éamonn has created a limited-edition wooden whiskey tumbler made with many of the same tools used by the Distillery’s coopers to craft the casks that give the whiskey its distinct flavour. Accompanied by a bottle of Black Bush, six limited-edition tumblers are available to win at blackbushstories.com. The closing date for entries is Friday 30th August.
#BlackBushStories celebrates those who challenge traditional thinking in their fields and live outside the box.
The collaboration forms part of the immersive event series which tells the stories of independent, spirited and extraordinary talent across Ireland and it aims to inspire others to follow their own passions whatever they may be.
Registration for these events is free and places are awarded by random allocation. To register for ‘Black Bush Carved’ and hear more about Éamonn’s story visit blackbushstories.com.
