The Famous Galway Bay Irish Whiskey is a great new expression in Irish Whiskey, exclusively available in Galway at all Galway Whiskey Trail venues.  To mark the official launch guests were invited to sail Galway Bay on Friday 27th May to taste the brand new exclusive Galway Bay Irish Whiskey.  

The stunning passenger vessel departed Galway Docks on a beautiful summers evening with the Galway Whiskey Trail.   With Pádraig Breathnach as MC for the evening we set sail into the Galway Sunset for the first tasting of the new Galway Bay Whiskey – a 10 Year Single Malt exclusive to the Galway Whiskey Trail.

The first official tasting of Galway Bay Whiskey was led by Whiskey connoisseur Cyril Briscoe. A founding member of the Galway Whiskey Trail, Cyril talked us through the unique merits and tasting notes of the unique Galway Bay Whiskey.

On board, legendary traditional Irish musicians Sean Keane and Máirtín O’Connor entertained the crowd with renditions of iconic Galway tunes as we sailed the traditional route of Galway’s historic Persse Distillery.

The Galway Whiskey Trail also presented Galway Food at its finest to complement the Galway Bay Irish Whiskey 10 Year Single Malt and as the sun sets on Galway Bay, Sean Keane lead with a rendition of Galway Bay, followed by plenty of music and song.  It was an absolutely fantastic evening, super company and a fabulous atmosphere.
