From USQ:

USQ has assembled a rather large pot of liquid gold for a St. Patrick’s-inspired survey of Irish Whiskey!  Dram fans should stop by USQ to taste bone-warming offerings from Cooley Distillery, Knappogue Castle,  Michael Collins, John Jameson’s Distillery, and Bushmill’s!  Blended and single malt whiskies will be flowing as well as Ireland’s premium liqueur offering- Coole Swan Dairy Liqueur!  Featured producers include Midleton’s Very Rare, Jameson’s 12yr and 18yr, Red Breast 12yr and 15yr, Knappogue 12yr and Twin Wood, Bushmills Black Bush and 16yr, and a host of Cooley entrants!  The most highly-acclaimed producer in recent time, Cooley Distillery’s Jack Teeling has created an amazing lineup including a trio of peated single malts from Connemara, Greenore 8yr and 15yr Single Grain whiskies, Tyrconnel Single Malt, and Kilbeggan 15yr!  Authentic Irish Soda Bread (from the Spirit Director’s Mom!) and Kerry Gold Irish Butter will be served from the bar for an added gustatory bonus!
