Whiskey Live is a great event to get an overview of what’s happening in the world of Irish Whiskey and as a bonus, you can sample many whiskeys to find your favorite one. For those who decide to attend the event, I also recommend attending the masterclasses. There you can try special vintages and unusual varieties of whiskeys as well as meet the actual distillers, whether large or small, new or established.

The Glendalough Distillery Masterclass is on Saturday 23rd November at 7.15-8.15pm. The last time I went to their Masterclass, I not only got a great overview of the Glendalough whiskeys, but I also got to taste their excellent gin. This Masterclass will focus on the great Irish Oak and you‘ll get to taste 5 or 6 samples and see how this majestic tree influenced their whiskey.

Please note that you need to buy a ticket to the main Whiskey Live event in order to participate in the Masterclasses.
