Ireland’s premier whiskey tasting event back

With over 60 whiskey producers alongside masterclasses, food pairings and cocktail bars, Ireland’s premier whiskey tasting event returns this November 23rd & 24th.

Now in its eighth year Whiskey Live Dublin takes place again in The Printworks at Dublin Castle over Friday November 23rd and Saturday 24th with one session on the Friday and two on the Saturday.

Attendees will have the opportunity to sip and sample the latest Irish whiskey releases as well as whiskies from across the globe and there will also be the opportunity to experience the ever-expanding range of other Irish craft spirits as well as some whiskey barrel-aged beers.

Irish Whiskey remains the world’s fastest-growing spirits category with exports up 14% in 2017 and expected to grow again this year.

The event has been created by The Celtic Whiskey Shop which is also behind the Irish Whiskey Awards and Gin Experience Dublin.

“Whiskey Live Dublin is an opportunity for consumers to meet the faces behind iconic whiskey brands and share their passion for Ireland’s national spirit,” said Celtic Whiskey Shop owner Ally Alpine.

This year tickets are €43 (plus booking fee) and are available from or from The Celtic Whiskey Shop on Dawson Street, Dublin 2. At least €10 from every ticket will be donated to charity partner Down Syndrome Dublin along with money to be raised from the sale of a special bottling of a blend of different whiskeys from distilleries around Ireland at the event itself as well as a raffle. Tickets for the masterclasses are also available online.
