    FURTHER INFO

    Fionn├íns book on Irish Single Pot Still whiskey, titled "A Glass Apart", was published in October 2015 and hailed as the definitive guide to the drink. 

    Since these whiskeys cannot be replaced, this unique Rare Dublin Whiskey Walkwill never take place again! Five vintage Dublin Pure Pot Still whiskeys, representing the last golden age of Irish whiskey,  will be yours to taste on one date only.

    Stop 1. We will visit the onetime bonded whiskey cellars of Mitchell's & Son Wine Merchants (last used in the 1970's)  where we'll taste a 1950's vintage Mitchell's Green Spot 10 Years Old whiskey in the very location where this whiskey once matured. 

    Stop 2. Meandering through the colourful streets of Dublin's Fair City, we'll find ourselves in front of the old copper pot still's of John's Lane distillery (closed in 1975) where we'll sample original 1960's era John Power & Son Pure Pot Still 7 Years Old whiskey that at one time passed through those very same stills.

    Stop 3. We will rest for a moment in the shadow of St. Patricks Tower, the 1757 smock windmill that once powered the great George Roe distillery that was closed in 1920's, to enjoy a sample of Old Irish Gold 24 Years Old whiskey that has links to this distillery.

    Stop 4. Onwards we will walk, across the River Liffey to Bagots Hutton, a onetime wine/spirits merchant of much repute on Ormonde Quay. We will sate our appetite with well-earned charcuterie, crusty breads and Irish cheeses, accompanied by a sample of 1950's vintage  Bagots, Hutton & Kinahan Mellow Dublin whiskey.

    Stop 5. Lastly we will finish at Bow Street, the spiritual home of Jameson whiskey. At the same location where John Jameson plied his trade, we will crack open a bottle of Jameson 20 YO that was distilled in Bow Street in the 1950's before being bottled by Morgan, of Dublin, sometime in the 1970's.

      Weather

      Even though we have a relatively mild climate that does wonders for our whiskey, it can at times get quite cold, windy or rainy in Cork.  In these events we simply get ourselves snug by an Irish pub fire or by candlelight and do our walking and talking indoors! These "Cosy Cork Whiskey Walk's" have proven quite popular and will remain a feature for winter 2018.
