IWS Special Tasting Series

Rye Whiskey In Focus

Thursday 12th August 2021 at 7:30pm IST

IWS Online LiveStream 

Please Note: Booking closed at 12:00noon today, Friday 6th Aug to allow places to be drawn and packs to be allocated for collection and shipping on time.

We are delighted to announce our August Special Tasting Series event Rye Whisky In Focus. With thanks to Fionnán O'Connor and Brian for over 18 months of planning and sourcing bottles we are now ready to schedule this event for our members; we are thrilled to bring you a unique opportunity to experience some remarkable and rare Rye Whiskey expressions. Join Fionnán on the night as we explore this fascinating style of whiskey...

This lineup will allow us to take a Rye Whiskey In Focus journey from a rare pre-Prohibition era 1917 distilled Historical US Rye bottling, to a Pennsylvania Style Rye, followed by a Kentucky Style Rye, then a Canadian Pure Rye, moving on to a vatted Rye, finishing with a modern experimental Global Rye expression.

Due to the rarity and expense of expressions included in the lineup a limited number of tickets are available for this event. Therefore, we will be holding a draw to allocate tickets, this is based on previous feedback and to try to make it fair for everyone who would like to participate in a tasting when numbers are limited. 

Please register your interest on the Waiting list now. It will be open until Friday 6th August at 12:00 noon. If there is higher demand than spaces available a draw will then take place, if successful you will be contacted to settle up to secure your booking. If there are spaces remaining by Friday at 12:00 noon, everyone registered will be booked on and a reminder sent out to the membership that there are spaces remaining, to be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The lineup includes six expressions:

1. Old Vandergrift Pre-Prohibition Era (Very Rare: Distilled 1917)

2. Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Bottled in Bond

3. Parker's Heritage Collection 8 Year Old Kentucky Straight Rye 

4. Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye

5. Willett Family Estate 3 Year Old Straight Rye

6. Stauning Curious 2019 Danish Peat Smoked Rye Spirit

The lineup includes a wide selection of hard to find Rye Whiskey expressions.

Everyone who is offered a space will need to settle up to secure their booking before collection (in Dublin 2) or shipping dispatch (on the island of Ireland only). If you don't settle up before 10:00am Mon 10th Aug your space will be offered to another member interested in attending the event. Payment via PayPal to secure your booking. Please read the Terms & Conditions: https://www.irishwhiskeysociety.com/Virtual-tasting-terms-conditions/

The event LiveStream will begin at 7:30pm on Thursday 12th August and is for members only. You will receive a link to the live stream in advance of the tasting. Make sure you are ready with your whiskey tasting glass(es), water and think about any questions you might like to ask on the night or you can email them in beforehand to: info@irishwhiskeysociety.com

Looking forward to seeing you on the night,
