[DUBLIN] – Whether you are a Dubliner discovering more about your city, are culturally curious or are an intrepid whiskey enthusiast, visit Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James in the heart of the Liberties to discover the story of fascinating local history, curious characters and, of course, the Pearse Irish Whiskey signature collection.
Dublin’s new boutique Irish Whiskey experience will welcome members of the public to its grand opening on Saturday, Aug. 26 and will boast exclusive tastings of all four Pearse Irish Whiskeys: Pearse The Original, Pearse Distiller’s Choice, Pearse Founder’s Choice and, for one day only, the exclusive Pearse Cooper’s Select. Admission to the grand opening will also offer tastings of surprise signature cocktail from resident mixologist Conor Ryan and the perfect whiskey food pairing.
Tours for the grand opening on Saturday, Aug. 26 will start at 10 a.m., with the last tour taking place at 5:30 p.m. There will be a tour every 30 minutes. Admission is €20, and tickets can be purchased online at www.pearselyonsdistillery.comor from the visitor centre at St. James.
The nature of the layout of Pearse Lyons Distillery means it will always be a boutique visitor attraction. The tour guides are called storytellers, as they bring to life the story of the lives and trades of the people who lived, worked and died in the vicinity of the church. It is a story of whiskey, the Liberties and the adjoining graveyard.
While whiskey is only part of the story, it is a big part of your experience at Pearse Lyons Distillery. You can sip and savour a range of small-batch Pearse Irish Whiskeys in the nave of the church against the backdrop of the Vendome copper pot stills while they are hard at work distilling the next batch.
