The Irish Whiskey Association and Irish Distillers hosted a mentoring event for fledgling brands at the Midleton Distillery last week.

Staff from 15 Irish whiskey distilleries took part in the event which saw globally recognised brands from the world of Irish whiskey offering support and guidance to new brands entering the industry.

Workshops on cooperage and maturation provided new businesses with the opportunity to learn first-hand from experienced craftsmen while practical demonstrations from Irish whiskey leaders offered an insight into the techniques required to create high quality Irish whiskey.

The programme also taught whiskey makers about the importance of wood purchasing, the skills of cooperage, cask handling, and the principles of maturation and blending.
