    Sat 20th July Session 1 @ Crawford & Co, Anglesea Street, Cork city

    Cork Whiskey Society members have again been invited to take part in judging the 2019 Irish Whiskey awards. We encourage you, as a valued member, to judge at least one category in these awards. 

    This will be the first of two blind tasting/judging events at Crawford & Co in Anglesea Street where, as well as a choice selection of beverages, they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, sandwiches and groceries. Please note that each member will be given a €10 food voucher, to enjoy the fine food fare at Crawford & Co on the day.

    Expert knowledge is not necessary to be a judge - quite simply pick your favourite from a selection of whiskey samples. Spittoons will be provided.

    Spaces are limited and we encourage members to attend at least one session  (Session 2 will be Thursday 1st August @ 5pm in the same venue). A number of whiskey categories (e.g. Pot Still, Malts, Grains etc.) will be divided, and judged, over the two sessions.

    Further categories relate to Irish Whiskey Bar of the Year, International Irish Whiskey Bar of the Year, and Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster Whiskey Bar of the Year. In due course we will communicate more on the judging of these categories.

    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. 

    • Tullibardine 13 YO Single Cask 46% abv 2005 "Chateauneuf-du-Pape" finish
    • Auchentoshan 20 YO Single Cask, 52.6% abv, 1995  
    • Highland Park 10 YO - 1989 Single Cask, 50% abv 
    • Mortlach 21 YO Single Cask, 46% abv, 1995  
    • Lagavulin 16 YO
    • Port Ellen 26 YO Single Cask, 50% abv, 1982 

    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:

    • Teeling 24 YO Single Malt
    • Bushmills 21 YO Single Malt  
    • Connemara 22 YO Single Malt
    • Powers Aviation  Single Cask 2nd Edition 
    • Cill Airne  Single Cask Release
    • Tullamore Dew Phoenix Limited Edition
