About this event
Join us at the Brewery Corner, Kilkenny for
Kilbeggan – ‘at the Heart of Irish Whiskey’
Ireland’s longest running licensed distillery, maintained since 1757 by McManus, then on to the Codds & Cuffee, to Locke’s and to the people of Kilbeggan prior to rebirth via Cooley and all on the same site by the river Brusna.
For this very special evening we will taste an eighty year span of liquid from the Old Kilbeggan heritage stills, stopping off at John Locke’s 1950’s Pure Pot Still, and through to the current day distillery reserve casks.
