Irish whiskies once ruled the world, and Dublin was the center of Ireland’s whisky industry. There are no distilleries left in Dublin, but there’s plenty of whisky history to be found, along with a handful of good whisky shops and great pubs. We’ll hear from Michael Hedigan, the latest in a long line of Hedigans to run the Brian Boru pub in Dublin’s Glasnevin neighborhood. In the news, Irish Distillers unveils two new single pot still Irish whiskies from Midleton and a massive expansion plan for Ireland’s largest distillery.
