Dick Mack's Pub in Dingle, County Kerry, is a traditional pub in, what is, the most Westerly town in Europe. While this seems like an unlikely location for a whiskey pilgrimage site, Dick Mack's, under the guidance of Finn Mac Donnell (and a helping hand from Peter White), has become one of Ireland's leading whiskey watering holes.
For this episode we have taken a step back in time to examine the roots of Irish whiskey, Poitín. Join us as we sit down with Micil Distillery's founder Pádraic Ó'Graillais as we discuss all things Poitín and its revival in the west of Ireland.
Welcome back WhiskeyPhiles to another Episode of Potstilled Radio. This week we take a trip to the most westerly town in Ireland, Dingle, Co. Kerry. It was here that we sat down over a taoscán with the youngest Head Distiller in Ireland, Michael Walsh. It was during this conversation over a whiskey (and a microphone) that we discussed all things about the whiskeys future, how Michael rose to the position that he was in today and the insane prices that Dingle whiskeys are achieving at auction today.
In Episode three I sit down with Michael Scully, the Founder of Clonakilty Distillery, in the active work-site of his future distillery. This week we diverged from the whiskey to have a chat over a glass of Silke gin. Whilst nosing the Rock Samphire, in the gin, we had an in-depth discussion about the future of the distillery, the revival of almost extinct malting barley varieties and the process of 'slow cutting' whiskey. Listen in to episode three to find out what the town of Clonakilty, County Cork, has in store for the future of Irish whiskey.
