Day 1 : The Dublin Whiskey Story: Luxury Whiskey Trail
Our meeting point is James Fox Cigar & Whiskey ShopÂ at 119 Grafton Street. The shop is in a very central location, just across the road from the front gates of Trinity College. Your friendly Whiskey Island Host is here to meet you and check you in for the tour and you have time to browse through the vast stocks of whiskeys while we wait for all guests to arrive.
Just next door we have our first stop â€“ The Irish Whiskey Museum â€“ a very fitting introduction to Irish Whiskey. Enjoy the captivating anecdotes of talented story tellers as they take you on a journey through the ages revealing the origins of Irish whiskey, its rise to glory, dramatic downfall and current global revival. Tasting of 3 quintessentialÂ Irish whiskeys included at the end of the tour, in the bar.
We board our luxury transport which is stationed not far from the museum and we travel along the River Liffey to Smithfield â€“ to the home of Jameson Irish Whiskey. John Jameson started distilling his famous whiskey here in 1780 and today, the Jameson visitor centre in the old distillery buildings is one of the most popular attractions in the city. Rather than taking the tour here at Jamesonâ€™s we have arranged a very special whiskey tasting for guests â€“ the cask draw experience in the new live maturation warehouse â€“ not to be missed.
Decades after the original Roe & Co Distillery closed its gates, one of Irelandâ€™s most influential names is inspiring a whiskey for a new generation. A visit to the state-of-the-art Roe & Co distillery, located in the former Guinness Power Station, takes you right to the heart of this remarkable resurgence of Irish Whiskey. We take a special three-part tour at Roe & Co.Â Observe the operational distillery, hear the hum of productivity, and witness the copper pot stills and mash tun from an impressive elevated glass walkway. Explore the unique process that makes Roe & Co a whiskey like no other in Room 106, named after the number of blends it took to perfect the Roe & Co liquid. Next we have a tutored cocktail & flavour workshop in Flavours Room where guests will explore the five pillars of flavour; sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami, and uncover their ideal taste profile when it comes to whiskey. Finally, enjoy a bespoke cocktail in the Power House Bar!
We finish our whiskey trail atÂ The Celtic Whiskey ShopÂ for a tasting of two premium Irish whiskeys and a delicious liqueur with one of the storeâ€™s whiskey ambassadors. The store is a whiskey lovers heaven and it is very central, just off St Stephenâ€™s Green, so we finish back in the downtown area and weâ€™re glad to give you some dinner recommendations and a few names of our favourite pubs that you should check out!Â
