Irish Distillers has launched the Cork Whiskey Way, a self-guided map that follows a whiskey trail through Cork city, showing visitors landmark pubs and destinations for top quality Irish whiskey.
The map is available in printed form from various pubs in the city as well as tourist centres, the Old Jameson Distillery in Midleton and on smartphones as an iOS app.
The trail features ten handpicked pubs, renowned for their great atmosphere and welcoming bartenders who have a passion for Irish whiskey.
Each pub will have a Cork Whiskey Way framed picture on the wall with a QR code on it. Once four of the codes within the ten pubs have been scanned, users will receive a certificate of completion signed by Brian Nation, Master Distiller, along with a complimentary pass to the Jameson Experience Visitor’s Centre in Midleton.
“The Cork Whiskey Way will showcase the integral role that the city of Cork plays in the craft and heritage of distilling and whiskey making,” said Pat Magee, Managing Director of Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard. “Many are aware of the strong local brewing history here, but it is actually distilleries that made Cork famous in the 1800s and 1900s.”
The pubs listed are:
- Le Chateau
- SoHo Bar
- The Mutton Lane Inn
- The Oliver Plunkett
- The Oval
- The Roundy
- The Woodford
