Raise your glasses for start of Belfast Whiskey Week


Lovers of ‘uisce beatha’ will be raising their glasses for the start of Belfast Whiskey Week tonight. 

It will feature multiple events, spanning nine days in partnership with 18 venues city wide and delivering sessions with more than 30 brands and distilleries.

This year’s programme includes whiskey tastings, cocktail events, theatrical experiences, chocolate making, comedy, fine dining experiences, heritage walking tours, music, fire-side talks, Irish dancing, candle making and food pairing sessions.

Belfast Whiskey Week will collaborate with Belfast Hidden Tours, Irish Whiskey Review and Belfast Walking Tours to provide three whiskey walking tours throughout the city.

Festival venues were selected for their strong whiskey links and their love of showcasing whiskey. These include Whites Tavern, The Merchant, The Duke of York, The Deer’s Head, A Peculiar Tea, Angel & Two Bibles, Urban Scullery, Tribal, Maddens, The Reporter, Nancy Mulligans, the National, Roam, Alba Steak House, Waterman House, and TradeMarket.
