Redbreast Irish Whiskey and Food Pairing Evening

whiskey from the redbreast family and beautiful food paired by The Galgorm resort.

hosted by Prestige Irish Whiskey Developer, Joe Magowan.

Guests had the opportunity to try different Redbreast Irish Whiskeys and enjoy food specifically chosen to complement each of the whiskeys. The ticket-only event offered an opportunity for our fellow whiskey lovers to come together and enjoy great drinks, delicious food and fantastic company.
