    Looking forward to raising a glass with you all.

    We are limited to spaces due to amount of samples.

    Lathery, knife-and-fork necessitating, leathery Johns Lane. It’s been a modern Irish classic and a society staple virtually since the day of its release. But that same earthy tobacco and almond bristle that sent new flavour shockwaves through Irish distilling in 2011 was once the dominant style of pre-blended Dublin, when names like John Power & Son were inseparably tied to darker tones of old Irish oils and densely textured distillate-driven pot still tipples. When the old Johns Lane distillery closed down and the new blended Powers took centre stage, it may have looked like those oily polishes were just one more artifact of a distant, different, Dublin and a slowly fading age. Today, however, those same flavour phantoms are beginning to look slightly more like forerunners of Ireland’s new vanguard of flavour-forward oils and spices, with several new heavyweights all joining the fight under the John Power flag. From specialty bottlings to an expanding range of core expressions, it’s clear that the brand is once again a Power to be reckoned with. Join international brand ambassador Gerard Garland and our own Powers-full regular Willie Murphy for a nightlong ode to Powers past and present as we toast the very promising future of this venerable old brand and the classic full-bodied flavours it continues to champion.
