Description

Join us on the Viking Whiskey Cruise on Saturday 4th August at 6pm where you will discover the fascinating history about Viking hoards, high kings, big battles and saintly scholars, while you will journey through a unique selection of Irish whiskeys from the Midland's region!

Many islands on Lough Ree were once inhabited by monks and their whiskey treasures. In fact the world’s earliest documented account of ‘Uisce Beatha’ was recorded here in the Midlands in the Annals of Clonmacnoise in 1405. But like almost all the monastic establishments in Ireland, they were looted several times by the Vikings. On the tour, we will delve into the fascinating history of the Vikings from their arrival by river to Clonmacnoise in 842.

While we will sail north up to Lough Ree, you will fully discover the centuries-old tradition of whiskey production in the Midlands and compare four contrasting Midlands Whiskeys to discern their unique characteristics.

The tour offers a truly unique and memorable experience! Come and join us and uncover the secrets behind some of our local whiskey brands and why the vikings always get their share in the Midlands!

Private tours for 20+ people are also available on request. Please contact us directly for availability.
