The Britons Protection, Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester
£15 per ticket
Stephen Teeling, the UK Brand Ambassador for Cooley, will be coming to the Britons Protection for one night only to present a selection of his whiskies. Cooley is the only remaining independent distillery on Ireland and as such does things a little differently to the 'big two' - Bushmills and Jameson. The whiskies are distilled and matured in a far more Scottish fashion and throw in the fact that they also produce Ireland's only peated whisky and you have a recipe for a very interesting tasting. We will, of course, be assessing the whiskies independently and scoring them as per usual to keep things on an even keel. Having won 10 gold medals at this years IWSC awards, Stephen is sure to be on a high so the timing for this event is perfect.
