Whiskey, much like old Ireland's other exports, beef and writers, was dutifully shipped out across an unappreciative and ultimately malicious British empire. With nearly a century of independence under the belts, things have improved considerably for the Irish but not always for their exports. Once a year, we Americans overconsume corned beef and Irish whiskey to show our appreciation for our Irish roots. Irish whiskey deserves better than to be confined to shots and a single misunderstood holiday (we should also eat more corned beef but that is a subject for another class). As one of the fastest growing spirits categories of the last 20 years it offer far more than inoffensive whiskey for shooting and we'd like to highlight some of our favorite things that are happening in the category.
Class starts at 7pm and $25 gets you 6 samples; if you don't like go ahead and save that money for more than 6 shots of 2 Gingers somewhere else.
