This was the absolute highlight of my hen! The set up was absolutely fantastic, everyone had their own little station with all the ingredients. Derek talked us through how to make them and gave us lots of fun interesting facts. Derek himself is so sound and knowledgeable and honestly couldn’t do enough for us, he literally went out his way for us (we mentioned we’d ran out of wine but after the cocktails nobody could drive to get more, so he dropped two of us down to the local shop to get some). He was fantastic. The drinks though… these are some 5 STAR – HIGH END cocktails, not your average cheap cosmos and sex on the beach, oh no. These are top shelf and hard to find spirits, mixers and liqueurs, best margarita and mojito I’ve ever had and the whiskey sour was just fantastic. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough, in fact we’re rebooking him for another event. This is a bargain at twice the price. Amazing. Made my hen.

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.


This is a really unique tasting experience. It’s small group so you can ask lots of questions, and Derek is really knowledgeable. You also get to taste some really different whiskeys and the experience is super fun! Can’t recommend it enough.

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.


Fantastic tasting evening in Killarney. Informative, engaging Derek has a huge amount of knowledge.Selection of whiskeys was intriguing. Would highly recommend it.

Cocktail experience 🍹

Had lots of fun and great tasting drinks at the cocktail-making class yesterday. Highly recommend to anyone!


Best cocktail making experience!

My friends and I had an incredible time making cocktails with Derek! He is very knowledgeable, fun, and welcoming. From the moment the experience started, Derek made sure no one ever had an empty glass and kept the complimentary prosecco flowing.

This is a perfect experience for hens, birthdays, corporate parties, or just a weekend activity. The cocktails we made were dangerously gorgeous, made with locally sourced quality ingredients and lots of laughter. I cannot recommend this enough, and I cannot wait to do it again!

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.
