Very good and informative talk in the whiskey making process. Taster session afterwards maybe could have been better if we had more than a thimble of whiskey. But overall grand and they also do a good pint of Guinness.

Not the most amazing venue but what a thorough talk on how Whisky is distilled. Our guide knew about every step in the process and was a good speaker. From making barrels to explaining the phrase, "Angels Share". The whisky tasting was interesting too!
