Deluxe Whiskey & Food Tour
19:30 - 21:30
Explore the age-old secrets behind single-malt whiskey production during a guided whiskey and food tour. Travel to venerated establishments in downtown Dublin and sample some of the finest whiskeys Ireland has to offer, sating your appetite with artisan cheese and Irish soda bread.
Launch your excursion at the Dingle Whiskey Bar, a venerated establishment pouring whiskeys from all over the world. Nestle up to the bar and toast with your first sample, named for the distiller's habit of marking the barrel to determine the liquor's age potential. The fabled "yellow spot" was reserved for a 12-year-old blend. Delight in this Yellow Spot's intermingling of flavours, and then follow your guide into downtown Dublin.
During the course of your tour, taste 5 premium whiskeys, with samples ranging from Knappogue 16 to Bushmill's 21. Make your way to a private tasting-room at the Rag Trader on Drury Street. Here, delight in artisan farmhouse cheese, soda bread with sultanas, and rich chocolate that pairs exceptionally well with Irish whiskey. Conclude your tour with a rousing conversation on the history of whiskey distilling before bidding your knowledgeable host farewell.
