Tasting Information

Irish Whiskey is currently undergoing a renaissance, growing at a rate not seen for centuries. New and exciting expressions are hitting the shelves almost daily, from new distilleries and new brands. Once the few same, tired old, brands sat in the homes and bars across the land but those days are gone, replaced by a resurgent industry that is exciting and new.
Bearing this in mind join the community of Whiskey Enthusiasts as they sample and learn about some of the finest Whiskeys available in a fun and casual atmosphere. On the night we will be providing 6 Whiskeys, Passed Appetisers and a special reserve single Cask will be unvailed for sampling.

TICKET PRICE £25PP | DATE: 9th OCT | AUSTINS BAR | TIME 8PM – 10PM

Did you Know?

James McAllister, a rich Whiskey Entrepreneur from the Glens of Antrim, once owned Tullyglass. He made the property his long term home.  Our research suggests that he entertained not only friends and family but also business clients and  politicians from across the world in its luxurious lounge and grand dining room. Amongst his stable of Whiskey Brands, the most famous was Clan Colla which was widely exported in the 1900s to America and the rest of the World.

FAMILY LABEL
Supporting the visual advertising, he also developed memorable straplines for his products, again a marketing technique well ahead of his time. ‘A grand old drop from Ballymena pot still. Distilled three times to give you that smooth distinctive taste’. The hotel’s primary water source is a well some 500ft below and the water percolates through volcanic basalt rock and is credited by our local authority as being one of the purest water sources in the Province. This is the water we serve to our customers ……. perhaps it was also one of the secrets behind James McAllister’s world famous whiskey?
