Join the teams from Stories & Sips, Irish Whiskey Auctions and Irish Whiskey Experiences for a first-of-its kind whiskey experience in one of the most exciting cities playing a part in the resurgence of Irish whiskey.

The opening of two new distilleries this year in the Titanic Quarter & Crumlin Road Gaol has sparked fresh interest in Belfast’s historic spirits industry, which in the late 19th & early 20th century rivalled Dublin as the epicentre of global whiskey production.

Join us for a whiskey-packed weekend as we go behind the scenes for exclusive, never before seen experiences at the city’s two new whiskey distilleries, Titanic Distillers & McConnell’s Crumlin Road Distillery, taking in a private tasting in the iconic Duke of York & savouring the best whiskey bars in the city.

Spend Saturday night in Belfast if you please (we have exclusive, discounted hotel rates) and join us Sunday morning for a unique whiskey walking tour of historic Belfast too.

You’ll be the first to experience all of Belfast’s whiskey distilling in one day and get a chance to taste the spirits that will eventually become Belfast-born whiskey while sipping on a few special whiskeys throughout the day too.
