Have a craic this St Patrick’s Day with Whisky 101 @ The Gallery
St Patrick’s Day is always a good excuse to down a pint of Guinness or a dram of whiskey. This year, both whiskey fans and novices will have the chance to learn about the Irish tipple and enjoy some tastings at The Gallery bar in Hampstead.
On Wednesday 16th March, The Gallery bar will be hosting ‘Whisky 101’, an event celebrating and exploring some of Ireland’s finest contemporary whiskies. The evening will be hosted by The Gallery’s manager and whiskey enthusiast Daniel Pavey and Dominic Tait, who will be representing The Dubliner and The Liberties whiskey brands. Guests will be taken on a journey from 10-year-old and Bourbon Cask expressions of the Dubliner range to the rich, spicy tones of The Liberties.
Each whiskey will be paired with a canapé course, while there will also be the chance to try beers from Northern Irish brewer McGrath’s. After learning about some of the history, production and styles of Irish whiskey, guests will be invited to record tasting notes on flavour cards. There will also be a selection of whiskey cocktails available to order on the night so you can really leave with an all-rounded knowledge of the tipple.
- ‘Whisky 101’ takes place on Wednesday 16th March 2016 from 7-9pm at The Gallery, 190 Broadhurst Gardens, West Hampstead, NW6 3AY. Nearest station: West Hampstead. Tickets: £15 include 3 flights of whiskey, 3 beer samples and canapés (10% of sales will be donated to UK charity Centre Point).
