We are extremely pleased to present an evening showcasing five remarkable Irish Whiskeys from Kilbeggan Distilling Company, especially including the Single Malt Irish Whiskeys of The Tyrconnell. Sean Rooney, Kilbeggan’s own Whiskey Ambassador for Upstate New York, is our special guest presenter for this class.
Born and raised in Sligo in the northwest of Ireland, Sean spent five years at Kitty Hoynes Irish Pub and Restaurant here in Syracuse cutting his teeth in the trade. His exceptional background and knowledge of the whiskeys of his homeland make him the perfect person to present this class!
History and Background – Kilbeggan Distillery
From the distillery: “Welcome to the home of traditional Irish whiskey. The Kilbeggan Distillery is the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland, retaining its license to distill whiskey on the same site and in the same buildings for 260 years. (Kilbeggan is named for St Bécán, one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland who founded a monastery in the area in the 6th century.)
The distillery is situated on the banks of the River Brosna, with plenty of access to the three natural ingredients needed for whiskey distillation – water, grain and turf. In fact, we still use the water from River Brosna to make our whiskey today.”
Today, Kilbeggan is home to three brands, which we will learn about and taste at this special event.
