Teeling Whiskey is to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2017 with a week full of festivities at its award-winning distillery. A brand new addition to the St. Patrick’s Festival official programme, Ireland’s patron saint will be honoured at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery with two events that will light up Dublin’s Newmarket and celebrate some of the country’s most exciting artisan producers.
Throughout St. Patrick’s Week, the Teeling Whiskey Distillery will be one of a number of selected Dublin buildings that will be transformed especially for the celebrations. Residents of the Dublin 8 locality and beyond are encouraged to stop by the distillery during the festival and check out the spectacular display of green which will be alight for one week only.
Following on from the huge success of last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Craft Fair, on March 18th the country’s most exciting artisan producers will once again return to the Teeling Whiskey Distillery for this popular event. With a host of Ireland’s top businesses showcasing their crafty creations under one roof, this year’s event will run from 10am-5pm and is free of charge.
Over 30 of Ireland’s finest up and coming artisan producers will be popping up at this year’s fair such as local marshmallow company Delish Melish, who will be catering to those with a sweet tooth and the Cupcake Bloke will be back at the fair serving up his signature bakes.
The Teeling Whiskey team will be on hand throughout the day to make sure attendees enjoy a delicious Irish whiskey with a sample selection of carefully crafted cocktails. Whiskey connoisseurs will be delighted to hear that products across the Teeling Whiskey Company’s award-winning range will be available to purchase at the fair and that’s not all – craft breweries Dot Brew, Hope Brewery and Wood Key Brewing will be sampling and selling their range of small batch brews to visitors.
Regulars to the event will be pleased to know that craft chocolatier Bean and Goose Chocolates will be serving up its signature hot chocolate as well as offering a carefully selected range of handmade chocolates with a Teeling twist. Back by popular demand, The Little Milk Company will give guests a taste of their premium range of cheddars, soft cheeses and bespoke boards that are tailor made for cheese lovers. And lovingly churned and hand wrapped in Ireland, Improper Butter will be showcasing their award winning garlic and herb grass-fed butters at this year’s fair.
New to this year’s Teeling Whiskey St. Patrick’s Day Craft Fair is a fascinating series of free talks which will take place in the intimate surroundings of the distillery’s Alchemy Room.
