What you'll do

Whiskey in the Irish Language is called 'Usice Betha' (pronounced: iiska Baha) which means 'The Water of Life', so lets breath some life into your evening and join me for An Introduction to Irish Whiskey.
Discover the history and the evolution of this beautiful spirit, how it is interwoven into fabric of Irish Heritage and Personality and it's importance to Irish Culture.
This is an interactive experience, so as we will learn about 3 different styles of Irish Whiskey that I will be sampling, we will discuss the Irish Whiskey you are enjoying and suggestions for whiskey for you to try in the future.
So grab a glass, pour some of your favorite Irish Whiskey and join me for an hour of Irish Culture, History, Craic & of course, Whiskey!

John was an excellent host for a client team building event! We sent tasting kits to each attendee and John tailored the event based on those whiskeys. Lots of fantastic feedback from the group about how much they enjoyed John's stories and knowledge. The roars of laughter tell it all - it was a huge success!

I bought reservations for this event as a gift for my parents. They thought it was great: very enjoyable with lots of fun stories from the host. Thanks to John for making this a good experience!

John was a very engaging and personable host. It felt like spending the evening with an old friend. He was very knowledgeable on the subject of Irish Whiskey and more than ever, we can't wait to go to Ireland one day when this pandemic is over. it was on our radar, and more so now. Thank you, John!.

Our time with John was a blast! We can't travel right now, but this gave us a little bit of Ireland at home in Canada. It was really great just chatting and hearing unique stories, but also learning about whiskey and how we can enjoy it ourselves (wherever we're at - even if just a beginner). Would absolutely recommend it. The only downside - now I really want to go back to Ireland or find the nearest pub!

We had an absolute blast during our whiskey tasting with John! It was the perfect virtual escape from our lockdown here in Toronto. John has a knack for storytelling! We had an incredible time hanging out with John, chatting about whiskey and drinking whiskey. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is into whiskey, or would just like to hang out and listen to stories. The only downside? John has made me miss Irish pubs even more than I thought possible!

Fantastic evening with John and a bunch of my friends. Well worth the cost. John is very engaging, great with stories and let us all interact without losing the flow of his talk. Great information and was still smiling the next day!
