I normally keep this site Irish-only whiskey related. But Irish whiskey fans can also be interested in whisk(e)y in general, and during the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to help people easily find events within the genre, as well as support and promote whisk(e)y companies, Irish as well as non-Irish.
This page is a work in progress. Enjoy, and let me know if you have suggestions of what I should add!
