Powers X Highballers’ Club


To celebrate World Whiskey Day, Powers Irish Whiskey is teaming up with some of NI’s best artisans to host a series of 10 whiskey themed events and experiences this May.

Whether you’re a whiskey lover, foodie, coffee buff or culture vulture, there’s something to suit every taste.

Level up your whiskey knowledge while experiencing something new as part of the Powers X WWD event series throughout May.


Bartenders of Northern Ireland: Always wanted your Charlie and the Chocolate Factory moment? Now’s your chance!

Join Dorothy and Shane Neary – creators of NearyNógs Chocolate – and Powers Whiskey Ambassador Joe Magowan for a guided tour, followed by an indulgent chocolate and whiskey tasting.

From bean to bar, Nearyógs takes great pride in its handcrafted small batch chocolate, hand crafted in their factory, nestled between the Mourne Mountains and the Irish Sea.

Much like Powers Irish Whiskey, every process is meticulously controlled so that the natural flavour shines through.
