We are very excited to be producing the 2nd annual Irish Cocktail Fest – a 32 county celebration of cocktails made with Irish spirits! It’s running from October 9th – 14th and any licensed bar, restaurant or hotel on the island of Ireland can get involved by showcasing one of the several Irish spirits we are working with and making a cocktail with it for the week of the festival. Registration is free and can be done in 3 simple steps by hitting the button on the top right of this page. Once the venue enters in their details, we’ll edit them and get them live as soon as we can.
All participating venues’ details will be listed on our site and divided up by the county. As soon as the festival starts, the public will be asked to vote for their favourite Irish Cocktail of the festival by using the #BestIrishCocktail on Twitter or by telling us on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GreatIrishBeverages. Last year’s winner was Davy Mac’s in Waterford with their “Apple Market” cocktail made with Gunpowder Irish Gin.
In addition to the venue campaign, each of the Irish spirit companies we are working with, will be hosting their own special festival event. Please stay tuned to our social media for all updates.
We’re wrapping up the festival in great style at East Side Tavern on Leeson Street, Dublin on October 14th at 6 – 9pm. For €10 plus booking fee, you can pick up a ticket that will allow you to sample wee tastes of some of the best festival Irish whiskeys, gins, vodkas and poitíns. And it also includes a complimentary Irish cocktail from a special menu we’ll be putting together just for that day!
Tickets are limited – so don’t delay, pick up yours now and join us for what promises to be one heckuva cocktail party! Pick ’em up here!
