H&F Whisk(e)y Society Presents: Irish Whiskey Tasting
Saturday, March 7th

12pm to 3pm
 
Join H&F Whiskey Specialist Casey Teague for a tasting fit for St. Patrick himself. Explore the origins of Uisce Beatha (Water of Life) and the heritage of the Emerald Isles with some of the most sought after whiskies in the world. We will begin with coveted blends and pot stills from the Midleton Distillery in Cork, including the legendary Midleton Very Rare, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Jameson 18 year. Next, we'll wander north to the Kilbeggan Distillery for a wee dram of Connemara, Ireland's only peated whiskey, and the spectacular Tyrconnell Single Malt. We will even visit the new Teeling Distillery in Dublin and finally tipple a few of the Old Bushmills Single Malts. This tasting will include light appetizers and a bit of traditional Irish fare for lunch all for $100.
