A Fun Evening Tasting Midleton’s Single Pot Still Whiskeys

Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey Tasting

Technology is awesome. Could you imagine coordinating and hosting a whisky tasting across multiple continents in real-time 10 or 20 years ago? 20 years back it would have most likely involved sending faxes to each other with a phone tucked under an ear. 10 years ago it would have been via email or an IM […]

Steve Rush, of The Whisky Wire fame, co-ordinated the #GrantsTT event and Grant’s Whisky provided the samples. As an added bonus, […]
