What's The Buzz
An absolute pleasure to hear Derek share his vast knowledge of Irish Whisky. On top of his many interesting facts and insights, he is a charismatic and friendly human with a great sense of humour. A huge recommendation to try his tour.
We booked the classic whiskey tasting at the Swan Bar for my husband, my 19 year old son and myself. We were so glad we did, it was one of the best experiences of our entire trip! Derek is incredibly knowledgeable and fun, we felt we were sharing cocktails with a friend. We are whiskey novices and learned so much! It was a truly great time, and the Swan Bar was beautiful and welcoming. Just book it! You’ll love it!
I recently had the pleasure of visiting a renowned whiskey tasting experience in Dublin with a group of friends, and I must say it was an unforgettable journey into the world of whiskey. Our guide, Derek, proved to be an exceptional source of knowledge and made the entire experience truly exceptional. If you're a whiskey lover, this is an absolute must-visit destination in Dublin.
Derek’s whiskey tasting was a highlight of our trip to Dublin. He was flexible with scheduling and selected whiskey at multiple price points, including some very accessible, and affordable options (a rarity at some tastings). His interactive and conversational style ensured all of our questions were answered. His passion for his work is evident, and he’s only matched by his enthusiasm. Highly recommend.
Won't find a better Whiskey Tasting Experience. Had a wonderful night in M.P. Walsh, where Derek ran through some cracking irish whiskeys, gained a great insight into some old reliable and new emerging irish whiskies. Derek's knowledge was excellent, you would find it hard to beat Experience Irish Whiskey when it comes to having a fun night tasting the best Ireland has to offer in terms of whiskey.
Highly Recommended!! Derek is an amazing host with a crazy amount of knowledge and great delivery. He took us on a journey through Irish Whiskey with a particular emphasis on new emerging exciting Irish whiskey. He has a true passion for Irish Whiskey and the people behind the bottles which comes across throughout. A really great experience with a genuinely lovely guy. BOOK NOW!
Wonderful experience, a must for anyone visiting Ireland The experience was exceptional as Derek hosted us in a very authentic Irish pub and was extremely knowledgeable about whiskey. It was also great to be able to speak generally with a local about all things Ireland / Dublin. I would highly recommend for any visitor to Ireland.
Whether you’re a whiskey lover or not, the Irish whiskey experience is a great activity to do in Dublin alone or with a group of friends. The host, Derek, was very friendly and welcoming, making the whole experience even better. You can learn a lot about whiskey history and try whiskey from different Irish brands.
I have done 2 tasting with Derek now and both have left me in awe. 1st was through The Village Whiskey Society and the knowledge he passed on to us was amazing. The overall set up was great and he was more than happy to entertain any questions (stupid or not lol) the whole group loved it. 2nd was for a friend's Stag. Derek was more than accommodating. We had a small group of whiskey and non whiskey drinkers. By the end of it he had educated and converted the non whiskey drinkers all while keeping everyone engaged and entertained. I can't wait for the next tasting.
Derek looked after my group when we visited Dublin just a few weeks ago in January. We were honestly blown away by his Irish Whiskey knowledge, enthusiasm, attention to detail and his professional but relaxed manner. We booked a tasting experience with him based on a solid recommendation from a friend and I can honestly say that it was even more enjoyable (and tasty) than expected. When I’m back in Dublin with another group, we would love to see Derek again. 100% would recommend Experience Irish Whiskey 🥃 Sláinte 🥃
A great evening spent with Derek as he explained the world of irish whiskey. He is a knowledgeable and passionate speaker on all things Whiskey. Would definitely recommend this experience if you are looking for an authentic irish whiskey experience 🥃🥃
Derek is such an incredible guide! He knows so much about whiskey, has a passion for it, and is really great at explaining things to less knowledgeable people. The tasting took place in a heritage pub in Dublin, and we all really enjoyed the experience and the setting! If you have a couple of hours, want to have fun, and also get a good understanding of this popular Irish drink, then search no further! This is a must do for you!
From start to finish Derek was energetic and had a wealth of whiskey knowledge like no one i have met before. I have been to a number of whiskey tasting experiences in the past but none come close. Derek has pure passion for whiskey and brings you through the whiskey story connected to each brand but also adds in some history. Highly recommend for anyone interested in having a real whiskey experience.
