May is Whiskey month

May is Whiskey month

May is Whiskey Month at O'Neill's Irish Pubs. O'Neill's will not only be showcasing their usual fantastic range of Irish, Scottish and American Whiskey, but also inviting you to; try one of seven guest whiskeys exclusively sourced for the month of May, join Whiskey Club and sign up for a master class run by whiskey experts.

Guest whiskeys include RedBreast Single Pot Still 12 year old Irish Whiskey, Elijah Craig Bourbon and Suntory Hibiki Japanese Whisky. You can choose to buy one to try or three to share with friends, or even pick up a Rewards Card to receive a free whiskey after trying four*. All accompanied with tasting notes to get the full experience. And if guests don't like their whiskey straight up, there's a choice of three whiskey cocktails to try.

O'Neill's has called in the experts from Jameson and Johnnie Walker to run a master class in every pub to teach guests everything they want to know about whiskey; how it's made, the different types and how to nose and taste it. The class is free but each O'Neill's is asking for a £5 donation to their local charity to secure each place and in return offering guests a free drink on arrival. To be a part of a master class, guests must first sign up to O'Neill's Whiskey Club where additional benefits include exclusive offers emailed to club members.

Sarah Taylor, Marketing Manager O'Neill's, said: "We're passionate about whiskey and can't wait to show off not only our great range and guest whiskeys during May, but also show the care and diligence we put into giving our guests their perfect serve every time. Our teams know that for whiskey lovers the serve is almost as important as the choice of whiskey. Whether you like your whiskey straight up in a nice glass, prefer to add some water and ice, or like it mixed as a cocktail, we'll provide the serve that's right for you."

So come down to O'Neill's during May, try something new, sign up for Whiskey Club, take part in a master class and enjoy all of this with the usual great food, drink and exceptional Irish hospitality.
