A fantastic evening with Peter Mulryan, an Irish Whiskey writer turned distiller. Peter was for many years the foremost writer on Irish whiskey, but in 2015 he founded Blackwater Distillery in Waterford along with some friends. He is therefore able to offer a unique perspective on the history and future of the Irish whiskey industry. After some dark times, is the happy ending around the corner? Are the Irish coming to get the Scots? The talk will be accompanied by some of Peter’s fine gin and one of his Irish whiskey bottling and the ticket price will be redeemable against bottle purchases on the night."
