The Whistler X Merrion Hotel collaboration’s 10-year-old single malt

The family-owned distillery has entered a partnership with Dublin’s Merrion Hotel to create The Whistler X Merrion Hotel, a 10-year-old single malt.

The Fireside Chat, featuring Boann’s whiskeys at The Merrion’s Bar No23 on 3 October, is the first of three whiskey tasting events over the coming weeks.

The event will feature tastings of The Whistler X Merrion Hotel  held by Alexander Witt, head distiller at Boann.

Two unreleased Whistler whiskeys will also be available for tasting, a Whistler 14-year-old white port single cask and a Whistler 21-year-old Madeira finish.

Also on the tasting menu is a Boann Winter Solstice single pot still and a Boann Summer Solstice single pot still.

Paddy Cooney, owner, Boann, said: “This very special, 10-year-old single malt will be available only at The Merrion. This is a fantastic opportunity for whiskey enthusiasts to taste the Merrion Whistler Whiskey alongside two unreleased expressions from the Whistler Whiskey warehouses.

“They will give a glimpse into what the future of the Whistler Whiskey will look like as well as the promising future of Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey from Boann Distillery.”
