Whiskey Tastings

in the rustic surroundings of the Oak Cellar Bar 

The word “Whiskey” (or whisky as it is known in Scotland) comes from the Gaelic words uisce beatha which translates to “water of life”. As the legend goes, Irish monks first discovered the method of whiskey distilling around 1000AD from their travels throughout the Mediterranean. The distilling process they learned was originally meant for perfume but when they took it home they found a way to use it to distill a drinkable substance.

The first recording of Whiskey in Ireland was around the start of the 15th century and the oldest claimed surviving  distillery in the world is Old Bushmills  in Co.Antrim which first obtained its licence in 1608.

Oak Cellar Bar Whiskey Tastings give guests the opportunity to trial and be guided through a selection of three Irish whiskeys. Guided by our Whiskey Connoisseur, who will give a little history,details about the distillery and the ageing process and discuss the merits of each. Tastings are approximently an hour in duration and advanced booking is reccommended.
