Still searching for Christmas gifts? The Irish Whiskey Museum have got you covered! Whiskey is a truly Irish gift that you can customise to suit the personality and taste of your family, friends and co-workers.
Here’s our Ultimate Whiskey Christmas Gift Guide.
Stocking Fillers and Secret Santa
In Dublin? Pop into our Whiskey Store on the first floor of the Museum and check out our selection of Whiskey Miniature Gift Sets. You can choose any of our huge selection of whiskey miniatures as part of the set and they come gift-wrapped and ready to go under the tree!
The Irish Hot Chocolate Gift Set includes a choice of whiskey miniature (we chose Powers), Buter’s Whiskey-flavoured Dark Chocolate and an Irish Whiskey Museum travel mug. The full set is only €15 and would suit anyone with a sweet tooth!
Another favourite is the Whiskey & Marmalade Gift Set. It includes a choice of whiskey miniature, Irish Whiskey Museum Marmalade (homemade in County Monaghan) and a tasting glass. At €20, this would go down a treat for the office Secret Santa.
What is the ultimate bestseller at the Irish Whiskey Museum? Powers Gold Label. Historically, Powers was the first Irish whiskey to ever be bottled and remained popular even during the decline of the Irish whiskey industry in the 1900s. It’s a Blended Whiskey mostly made up of Pot Still, meaning that it keeps that spicy flavor that is iconic to whiskey made in Ireland. Available in our Whiskey store for only €35.
Another favourite to those who visit the Museum and Whiskey bar is Redbreast 12 Year Old Single Pot Still. It scored 98/100 at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2019, earning the ‘Worldwide Whiskey Trophy’. Redbreast is called ‘Christmas Whiskey’ because it is matured in fruit sherry casks. So it’s perfect for the occasion!
Launched in 2019
The Irish Whiskey Museum hosted the launch of the Writers’ Tears Double Oak in May this year and quickly launched in six markets across the globe. Its smooth vanilla tones make it a great beginner’s whiskey. However, what makes this whiskey different is that it is matured in both French and American oak casks. This adds plum notes to the nose (alongside the vanilla) and citrus to the palate. Looking for a gift for a brandy lover? Walsh’s Whiskey, the minds behind Writers Tears’ Double Oak, collaborated with the Lagaret family in Cognac, France. Available for €60.
Whiskey history fanatics will also love the brand new Grace O’Malley Whiskey. The brand also launched in May and is dedicated entirely to the famous Irish Pirate Queen of the West Coast. You can read all about the history of Grace O’Malley and the whiskey here. Available for €40.
