Drinks festival in Dublin

A convivial time is promised at Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, this weekend. Bord Bia (the Irish Food Agency) is hosting the first national independent drinks festival where we will have the chance to sample products from Ireland's smaller, more innovative brands.

Whiskey lovers will make a beeline for the Cooley and Hot Irishman stands but there will be a few other grain spirit-based tipples on offer too: Boozeberries and, I hope, Bunratty Potcheen (caution: this site may induce flashbacks to 1995).

The event is free and all details can be found on the Bord Bia website.
