    Our annual "Other Spirits" events are designed to inform our members about the exciting world of Spirits outside our beloved Whiskey. We are thrilled to partner with Tequila Jacks Restaurant & Tequila Bar for this special event. 

    Guests will be welcomed with a well-prepared Margarita using 100% Agave Tequila no less,

    We will enjoy traditional Mexican Sangrita with our first samples before platters of Mexican Food (think Taco's, Chicken Taquito's, Chicken Quesadilla, Queso Fundido etc.) will be gladly introduced. 

    We'll also sample a curated selection of the variously matured styles of Tequila, and one artisinal Mescal, before finishing on the national cocktail of Mexico: The Paloma

    Samples on the night will include the following varieties:

    • Patron Tequila "Blanco"
    • Olmeca Altos Tequila "Reposado"
    • Tequila "Anejo" (either Don Julio or Jose Cuervo 1750)  
    • Tequila Esperanto Sellecion "Extra Anejo"
    • Union Viejo Mescal (come along to learn about this smoky Mexican)

    "Belfast & Bushmills" Whiskey Tour

    2 Nights: €99 Deposit & Final €99 payment due by end of August

    "In a neat little town they call Belfast" goes the lyrics to the well-loved traditional ballad known as The Black Velvet Band. And a neat little town it certainly is; steeped as it is in whiskey history, the center of Irish distilling from the late Victorian period, and a must-visit for any serious Irish whiskey lover. The whiskey-laden trinity of The Harp Bar, The Friend At Hand and The Duke of York pub, in the same small cobbled crossroads location, make the trip worthwhile in itself.   

    The proximity of the famed Bushmills distillery however, reached via one of the most inspirational coastal drives in the world, makes our journey northward even more rewarding.

    The ticket cost will cover:

    •  Return train journey from Cork
    • 4* hotel stays (twin bed shared room) for two nights, including evening meals and breakfast bags
    • Private bus transfers to and from Bushmills
    • A visit to the Giants Causeway on the Antrim coast
    • Bushmills distillery tour inc. private premium whiskey tasting
    • Premium Cork & Belfast whiskey selection tasting in The Harp Bar, Belfast
    • A visit to The Duke of YorkThe Crown and The Friend At Hand whiskey shop.
