Irish Whiskey Tasting on ST PATRICK'S DAY (WINCHESTER)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TASTING WILL NOW RUN AT THE MERCURE WESSEX HOTEL, OPPOSITE THE CATHEDRAL
In our everlasting mission to educate and expand our palates, we at Hampshire Wine School also host informal whiskey tasting events in the traditional and atmospheric function room of the White Star Tavern, in Southampton City Centre. Our knowledgeable and friendly whisky tasting tutor, Kevin White, focuses on providing the juicy details you really want to know, hopefully shedding light on the wine jargon that can so easily confuse.
TONIGHT WE ARE FOCUSING ON TASTING IRISH WHISKIES ONLY ... TO CELEBRATE ST PATRICK'S DAY IN STYLE!!! ;-)
Our Whiskey Tastings provide step-by-step instruction in how to get the most from tasting single cask, single malt whisky. Wherever you live in Hampshire, you can get together, relax and indulge with the Hampshire Wine School and like-minded students of all ages. Besides, what a fabulous way to spend a Saturday evening out! ;-)
In this Irish Whiskey Tasting, you will:
- learn how to taste whiskey like a professional
- sample 5 different drams from IRELAND
- learn about the fascinating history behind Irish whiskies
- understand the differences between Irish, Scottish, American and Japanese Whiskies

A fabulously fun tasting designed as an introduction to possibly the world's greatest spirit. Slainte!
