Irish whiskey is enjoyed around the world, but perhaps not with as much passion as in Dublin. Leo Phelan is the president of Dublin’s Irish Whiskey Society, and shares some of that passion with us in this week’s episode. We’ll hear his excitement about the revival of Pot Still Irish Whiskey, discuss some of Dublin’s distilling history, and look at the future for Irish Whiskey. In the news, Redbreast 12 Cask Strength is on its way to the U.S., Masterson’s Rye is headed home to Canada, and Whyte & Mackay isn’t going up for sale any time soon.
