Mark your calendars for Friday night!
This week’s Irish Whiskey Lock-in Livestream is going to be epic.
Who invented whiskey? The Irish? The Scots? The Moors? I’ll be joined by Chris Hennessy, co-founder of a company that has resurrected the historic recipe of the first recorded mention of Aqua Vitae, the water of life (Uisce Beatha) to create a modern day version of this spirit.
Chris is an oracle of knowledge on all things Irish whiskey. I’ve yet to pose a question to Chris on even the most obscure elements of Irish whiskey that he hasn’t been able to answer extensively.
So, in addition to having Chris share the stories and sips of his Aqua Vitae, we’re going to play “Catch Chris Out” where I spring random bottles and whiskeys (from all eras) on Chris and challenge him to share obscure, non-publicly-known information about the maturation, mash bills, distillery etc.
So, think of the most difficult questions to pose to Chris during our livestream and we’ll see if we can stump him. I’m not sure we can but it will be great craic trying.
Additionally, we’ll be sipping on the wonderful The Liberator from Wayward Irish Spirits – we may even have an appearance from its creator Maurice O’Connell – and Green Spot Chateau Montelena from Mitchell & Son Wine Merchants.
Join us Friday May 8th, 4pm PST, 7pm EST, Midnight Irish time.
