Description

Experience the best of Irish food and whiskey, with this two night all inclusive break for two. Your Secret Ireland Escapes local guide will lead you on a tour of Ireland's whiskey region, and share knowledge of the history of whiskey, introducing you to parts of Ireland few get opportunity to see. This is Ireland at its finest, untouched by commercial tourism.

Day One

Enjoy luxury chauffeured transport from Shannon airport to your private riverside villa. Following a champagne reception, hop onto a motor yacht (The Azul) and set sail for a private island that houses a castle, where you’ll enjoy a tasting of Ireland’s traditional – and formerly illegal – Poítin, and Meade liquors.

Following this, you'll arrive at The Hunters Manor where you will take part in a three-cheese tasting of artisanal Tipperary cheese with homemade spicy chutney’s and organic apple syrup.

Next up, experience an atmospheric whiskey tasting masterclass at The Private ‘Shibeen’ (a formally illicit, social whiskey house). Taste your way through three rare whiskeys with an expert, in a room lit by candlelight and an open log fire.

The private yacht will take you back to your villa, and end the evening with an Irish seafood dinner. At dinner you will enjoy a 300 degree view of the Lakeland's architecturally designed private guesthouse.

Day Two

After a hearty breakfast, venture on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Jameson Distillery, exploring areas not accessible to the general public. Visit the cooperage centre to learn about techniques and tools that have been making Jameson casks for generations, and the secure maturing vaults to witness the maturation process – walking amongst 1000s of casks which house the ageing whiskey.

Following the tour, enjoy a talk on the history and process of making Irish whiskeys, followed by a whiskey tasting of four premium Jameson whiskeys at the prestigious Irish Whiskey Academy. To end, pour your own bottle of 59% Jameson Select Reserve Cask Strength Black Barrel, from a flame-charred black Bourbon barrel; this whiskey is triple distilled in small quantities by Midleton’s four whiskey masters just once per year.

Personalise the label with your name, date and the whiskey’s cask number and ABV and become a part of the Distillery history books, by logging the bottle, your personal details and a comment in the ‘Bottle Your Own’ ledger.

To end the day, feast on a six-course whiskey infused tasting menu with the full silver service treatment inside The Whiskey Tower at Flanagan’s on the Lake.

Day Three

Awake to breakfast and magnificent views from your villa before being whisked away by luxury chauffeured transport back to Shannon Airport.
