Overview

This “sophisticated guide for fans of Irish whiskey” explores the history, distilleries, and pubs—and includes twelve original cocktails (The Wall Street Journal).

An Irish whiskey guru, two bartender behemoths, and an adept writer combine forces to create this comprehensive guide to Irish whiskey. Starting with an introduction to the history of whiskey in Ireland, the authors explain what makes each style unique. An illustrated tour of the four Irish provinces features twenty-two distilleries and some of Ireland’s most iconic bars and pubs.

From Barley to Blarney links rich historic heritage with today’s whiskey boom and a look ahead at the future for Irish whiskey producers. Then the fun really begins as the masterminds behind 2016’s “World’s Best Bar,” Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, share twelve original mixed-drink recipes tailor-made for Irish spirits.

In his role as Tullamore Dew Ambassador, Tim is a foremost presenter at whiskey shows and cocktail weeks, discussing Irish whiskey history, cocktails, and one of his favorite topics, the Irish pub.
