The Irish Whiskey Museum brings the art of whiskey distilling into Dublin with a selection of intuitive exhibits demonstrating the evolution and methodology involved in producing the spirit. While Scotland has become the dominant player in the distilling market, many of the techniques up north used Irish know how carefully honed over generations as whiskey evolved from a foul brew into a refined, delectable product. This is a point the Irish Whiskey Museum keenly emphasizes while noting the endorsements the alcoholic drinks industry have uniformly bestowed upon their establishment.
Tours regularly occur throughout the day, with participants invited to sample three differing whiskies each distinct from the other. The sampling process is an avenue for explanation, with the different qualities of the malt and casks imparting subtle notes to each drink. Those wanting to taste a luxury whiskey and take home a souvenir of the museum might elect to upgrade themselves to the VIP status befitting a truly tasteful tippler.
