The Dublin Whiskey Fest kicks off this Febraury 16th and runs until the 21st. There’s 25 venues on board so far, with each of them creating a signature cocktail specially for the event. They wanted to show the versatility of Irish whiskey, so they’ve asked the bars to create within one of these five categories- hot toddy, an Irish coffee, an Irish whiskey cocktail, a pairing with a local beer or just a neat serve. Similarly, they want to show the versatility of Irish bars, so they’ll be having the event in traditional pubs, specialty cocktail bars, restaurants, and craft beers bars.
