BBQ, Whiskey & Cocktails @ The Officers Mess, Collins Barracks
Cork Whiskey Society have been invited to Collins Barracks for a summer BBQ with a difference. Please clear your calendar and join us for our first ever weekend event on Friday 26th July 2019.
On the night we will enjoy delicious outdoor Barbecue fare, tasty whiskey cocktails, followed by a twelve year old West Cork whiskey, or two, from the private bar in the Officer's Mess. So become an officer, and perhaps a gentleman, for one night only by joining us above Cork city, at this historical location on the Old Youghal Road, Montenotte.
Happy New Year to all our members! We are delighted to launch our first tasting of 2019 upstairs @ Coqbull Restaurant on Wednesday 30th January.
Join us for a celebration of Scottish culture, food and whisky. Once again, our very own resident Scotsman, Ewan Patterson, will host the evening.
We have worked hard to acquire Scotch malt expressions of the highest possible caliber. So feast your eyes on the below selection that spans a selection of Scottish Single Malts from Speyside, Islay, the Lowlands, the Islands and the Highlands.
Did you know that an Irish Single Malt whiskey, Teeling 24 YO, has recently been awarded "World's Best Single Malt" at the much respected World Whiskies Awards. Overcoming strong competition from Scotland and Japan, this is a proud first for Irish whiskey.
The judges literally gushed with praise: "Beautiful nose of orange peel, chocolate truffle and nuts. Caramel as well. Full bodied with fruity pineapple, honey and salted caramel. Creamy on the palate with hints of new leather. Long lasting finish with vanilla, fruity pear and apple notes."
To celebrate this achievement, we are inspired this month to taste this whiskey for ourselves, alongside a stable of some of our favourite heavyweights of the Irish whiskey landscape:
