Midday on Saturday 25th of November we set off on our way to Whiskey Live Dublin 2017. Before even thinking about all the lovely drams ahead, we filled up on a large lunch before heading into the venue.

What a great surprise when walking into Whiskey Live Dublin 2017, we were met with a bustling lively scene with whiskey enthusiasts from all over the world milling around the countless stands inside. The event was at least two times bigger this year, and all the space at the Dublin Print-works was being used to its fullest potential. The event looks like its going to get bigger every year, and could probably do with relocating to the convention centre next year, such is the demand and rise of Irish whiskey this year.

We had great new drams, great food and met old friends at each turn. At under €50 for all this tasting and atmosphere, it really is one of the best value events in Ireland. Now down to the real business of the day, which whiskeys stood out from the crowd at this prestigious event.

We enjoyed many more great whiskeys and met and exchanged lots of interesting anecdotes and trivia with many enthusiasts from across the world. We tasted and talked into the evening and then our time, unfortunately, had run out. Now the evening session was about to commence, another group of whiskey lovers would get to experience all we had just enjoyed. We headed out to Dublin’s city centre with a great feeling that the Irish whiskey industry was well and truly resurrected.

Whiskey Live Dublin 2017 was organised by Ally Alpine and the staff at The Celtic Whiskey Shop, and a special thanks should be reserved for all their hard work.
