As a whiskey drinker of all types, I was glad to experience more about the Irish whiskey scene. The triple distilled smoothness made for a great tasting and experience.

The tastings range between €20 and €50, with a sampling of four different whiskeys during the course of the session. The history of irish whiskey as well as the process is explained through 2 videos as well as our guides.
