Irish Coffee Festival in the pipeline for Killarney

People in Killarney have always has a strong interest in Irish and international whiskey

WHISKEY enthusiasts in Killarney have formed a new group, affiliated to the Irish Whiskey Society, which is dedicated to the finer points and the sensible enjoyment of their favourite tipple.

Led by a team of whiskey sommeliers, they will explore the huge growth of whiskey through educational events and tastings with their first outing planned for the Skellig Six18 Distillery and Visitor Experience in Caherciveen on Monday, September 28.

The team at Skellig Six18 is currently producing gin onsite but they are well advanced in the design stage for a whiskey plant where they plan to focus on making single pot still Irish whiskey.

The visit will include a tour of our distillery where guests will be guided through the production process and briefed on plans for the future.

Killarney Irish Whiskey Chapter PRO, Dermot McGuckin, remarked: “People in Killarney have always has a strong interest in Irish and international whiskey and we are blessed in Kerry to have our own fine brands”.

He said the Irish Whiskey Society exists to promote the sensible enjoyment of Ireland’s indigenous spirit and to introduce Irish whiskey fans to the whiskeys of the world.

“We are currently working on a number of events, including the Irish Coffee Festival in Killarney for 2021,” said Dermot.

Members of the society enjoy extra privileges, including priority booking for our tastings, distillery visits and the chance to subscribe to our unique, limited edition bottling of Irish whiskey.

The day trip to Caherciveen will depart at 3.00pm from the Celtic whiskey Store on New Street, Killarney and the fee for the return bus journey is €40. To book contact [email protected]
