You’ll then be talked through a selection of some archetypal whiskeys from over the sea to get a greater understanding of why and how the Irish create their most famous drink.
The whiskeys on the list to taste will be
- Tyrconnell 10yr
- Green Spot
- Kilbeggan 8yr
- Powers 12yr
- Red Breast Lustau Edition
The tasting will be followed by a toast, as we raise a glass of the beautiful Yellow Spot 12yr and a chance to ask any burning questions about the water of life.
Why we love Shebeen: Next door to Steam, there’s a black wooden door with the word, Shebeen painted on it in white. This is a (semi) secret authentic Irish snug and liquor store. It’s run by welcoming if irreverent Kevin and Richard. Pictured on the wall is Kevin’s father who was an international goalkeeper and played in goal for Ireland on numerous occasions. Kevin and Richard will remember your names, offer you a drink including a Guinness or beer which are on draft and something from their list of wines or whiskeys.
