Went for a rainy day activity, had a great time! I knew nothing about whiskey, but left the class an expert. Gary and Luke were fantastic bartenders, and deserve to be tipped in Lucky Charms and Flaming Cheetos!

The tastings range between €20 and €50, with a sampling of four different whiskeys during the course of the session. The history of irish whiskey as well as the process is explained through 2 videos as well as our guides.
