My passion for Irish whiskey goes back three generations, to my great-uncle Archie Savage. He was a catholic who owned a pub in Belfast in the 1920s. He was compensated by the English government to move south. So he moved to Dublin with my grandfather and they set up a small wine and spirit company. My work took me around the country, meeting publicans and distillers. This gave me a huge insight and interest in Ireland’s great whiskey heritage. I have lived in Dublin and worked in the drinks industry all my life. There are seven hundred pubs in Dublin. I cant say I will take you to them all. But I will take you to some of my favorites. The renaissance of Irish whiskey has opened up new horizons for connoisseurs of good whiskey. I'm looking forward to being your guide and helping you satisfy your thirst for whiskey knowledge. Cheers. G.
