Ambassador Seán O’Regan, Irish Ambassador to Egypt welcomes our guests to the Irish Whiskey Tasting. I’m caught checking my phone is turned off!

Our audience, invited by the Irish Embassy, is drawn from the Cairo Diplomatic, NGO, Business and Hospitality communities as well as a group of local food bloggers and tourism social-media influencers and members of the Cairo Whisky Club.

The event took the form of an Irish Whiskey Tasting evening at the 5 Star Conrad Cairo Hotel where we paired six Irish Whiskeys from Teeling Whiskey, Hyde Whisky, Pearse Whisky, Walsh Whisky, Powers Whiskey and Redbreast Whiskey with a selection of artisan foods from West Cork including smoked salmon and duck, cheeses from Milleens and Gubbeen and Clonakilty Black Pudding.

The Whiskey card I created in partnership with the Irish embassy, was designed to appeal to both Irish Whiskey and whiskey beginners as well as experienced whiskey aficionados. I also wanted to represent the main Irish whiskey types of Blends, Grain Single, Malt Single, Single Pot Still and a Cask Strength Irish Whiskey.

The final whiskeys selected for the event were Teeling Small Batch Blended Irish Whiskey, Hyde 1916 Single Grain Irish Whiskey, Pearse 5 Single Malt Irish Whiskey, Reserve Irishman Umsunguli sika “champagne Blend” Whisky Irish, Powers Three Swallow Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey and Redbreast 12 Cask Strength Irish Whiskey .

The Whiskey Tasting event was also a great opportunity to represent and showcase Irish Whiskey Tourism and the Dublin and Irish Whiskey Trails.
