Irish Whiskey, Beer and Bacon at Pearse Lyons Distillery

Whiskey, Beer and Bacon at Pearse Lyons Distillery

We invite you to join us for a night of Whiskey, Beer and Bacon in the former St. James’ church on Friday, Oct. 11 2019 at 6:30 p.m. To celebrate Irish Whiskey 360 and the Irish Whiskey Festival from Oct. 10 to Oct. 13, in conjunction with Taste The Island, we have conjured up a sumptuous and bespoke food and drinks pairing.

Meet the Makers

Utilising organic Irish produce, we have carefully paired whiskey, with beer and bacon. These tantalising delights are all interlinked, and your hosts will explain every step of the way in how they relate to each other and why we chose them. From utilising our Kentucky Bourbon barrels to age our award winning whiskey to making the most of our spent grains from the distilling process to create beautiful handmade beer crackers.

On the night you will meet the highly skilled and talented makers of the delicious ensemble; Brewer, John O’Brien from Pearse Lyons Brewery, Dundalk, Martin Mularkey, Distiller at Pearse Lyons Distillery and our cook, Lisa Turner from Pompous Pantry. Each speaker will talk you through the thought process and innovation of creating new products and pairing them with Irish Whiskey.

What’s the food offering?
