Walsh Whiskey Distillery Launches Cutting Edge VR Tour at The Loop in Dublin Airport
Walsh Whiskey Distillery has partnered up with virtual reality company The VR Agency and The Loop at Dublin Airport to offer a unique experience: a free three-minute VR tour of the distillery’s 18th century Royal Oak estate in County Carlow.
Passengers travelling through Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport can stop at the Walsh Distillery pop-up shop during July and August and enjoy the innovative experience which includes views of the process to create the three styles of Irish whiskey (pot still, malt and grain).
Bernard Walsh, founder and managing director of Walsh Whiskey Distillery said “we are delighted to bring the first ever virtual reality distillery experience to passengers in The Loop, Dublin Airport.”
The tour is “both fun and informative” and at the recent opening, Bernard expressed he hopes the experience provides an interesting “introduction to the artful science of Irish whiskey distillation.”
And the best part is, at the end of the tour, you can enjoy a very real complimentary tasting of Walsh Distillery’s whiskeys The Irishman or Writers Tears.
Paul Hunnisett, ARI head of Liquor, Tobacco and Confectionery said: “ARI is delighted to partner with Walsh Whiskey Distillery on this innovative 21st century travel-retail experience. I’ve always been fascinated by the whiskey distillation process and have visited lots of distilleries in Ireland and Scotland, but I was blown away by the level of detail and interaction in this virtual distillery tour.”
