Irish Whiskey Showcase with Ronan Collins
Once limited to a handful of distilleries producing a limited number of whiskies, Irish distilling has moved on leaps and bounds in recent years with the number of active distilleries set to double between now and 2030. The result for fans of fine whiskey is that quality is improving and innovative and choice is increasing. Single malts, blended malts and innovative barrel finishes are regularly released and old classics are being re-evaluating.
We are delighted to welcome Ronan Collins to Hedonism to present this pre-St Patrick's day showcase. Ronan is a senior brand ambassador with a passion for fine Irish whiskies and will be guiding guests through a tasting of five iconic Irish drams - Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength, Redbreast 21 Year Old, Green Spot, Red Spot and Midleton Very Rare 2018 Release.
We hope you can join us for this celebration of Irish whiskey with one of the category's most passionate and knowledgeable advocates!
Christian Drouin Calvados Tasting with Alex Mermillod
Calvados is one of the world's great spirits categories and sadly often over-looked. Distilled solely in Normandy in northern France, Calvados production represents the perfect marriage of agriculture, science and gatronomy. Distillers often keep orchards of over thirty different varieties of apples, carefully considering the sweetness, acidity and aromatics of each species before it is added to the final blend. Distillation takes place in small copper pot stills before long ageing in oak barrels before bottling.
Christian Drouin is one of the region's most famous names - a family-owned house established in 1960 that and is currently managed by the third generation. Pioneers in many senses, the Drouins have not only focused on producing very fine single vintage and blended bottlings of aged Calvados, but also on reviving lost styles such as "blanche de Calvados", experimenting with unusual barrel finishes and even producing an apple gin using un-aged apple brandy as the base!
We welcome Drouin's-own Alex Mermillod to Hedonism to host this fantastic showcase. Alex will be pouring six superb spirits from the Drouin portfolio including La Blanche, VSOP, XO and Hors d'Age. The tasting will finish with two very special single vintage bottlings from 1980 and 1970.
