Cork Whiskey Society
Cork Whiskey Society host regular whiskey tasting events in Cork. We meet regularly to learn about the rich heritage of distilling our native spirit in Ireland, to enjoy the company of fellow whiskey-lovers and to sample interesting whiskeys that are often prohibitively rare and expensive for the individual consumer. In addition, we lay down casks of whiskey with various distilleries and plan, in the future, to bottle Cork Whiskey Society expressions for the benefit our members only.
2018 has come and gone. As announced at our Christmas tasting, Cork Whiskey Society have laid down a 2018 cask of Pearse Lyons distillery whiskey. This boutique distillery, situated in James Street Dublin, can be seen in the image below.
At some point these will be bottled for members-only. Cork Whiskey Society now hold casks, or a share of casks, from the below distilleries:
"Quite simply, we're all about whiskey"
Come to a Tasting
Tasting attendee's, including non-members, are a diverse bunch who share the enjoyment of rare whiskeys in a social setting. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the cordial, fun atmosphere. The days of stuffy, boring Society's are long gone!
Cork Whiskey Society membership is a great way to enhance your knowledge and enjoyment of mostly Irish whiskeys in the company of like-minded individuals. We've yet to find a more enjoyable way to sip fine whiskey.
Sell your Whiskey
We're always on the lookout for vintage Irish whiskeys to include in our tastings. We provide, at no obligation, expert appraisal and a means to sell on your old Irish whiskey. You may even opt to join us when we finally sample that old relic!
Cork Whiskey Society host monthly tastings in pleasant city whiskey venues e.g. Shelbourne, Oliver Plunkett, Bull McCabes, The Roundy, CoqBull, Coughlans, Costigans, The Porterhouse, Franciscan Well etc.
