Fully tutored online whiskey tastings. We ship miniature bottles of our favourite Irish whiskey brands to you and your guests, and we meet online for some fun!


In response to the times we live in, Whiskey Island has launched a Virtual Irish Whiskey Tasting product. The experience is available for groups, privately. We require a minimum number of 10 people per booking, no maximum numbers apply. 

Once we receive your booking, we source the required amount of whiskey for your delegates (each bottle sized 50 millilitres / airplane mini). We source a nice mix of whiskey – some well established brands and some ‘new wave’ whiskeys. We also incorporate as many different styles as possible so there’s nice diversity across the tastes. We ensure that the whiskeys we use, enhance and compliment the story that we like to deliver – the fascinating story of Irish whiskey through the ages.  

We then package the whiskey into tasting kits and they are ready to be shipped to your guests, wherever your guests may be! We can ship the kits all over Ireland, the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand…and many more… it’s a long list as to where we can ship!

We are still shipping to the UK without any major Brexit-related delays. We take care of all import duties and taxes on alcohol – your guests will never be asked to pay taxes to release the whiskey, we have it all covered. 

The tasting itself is delivered from the Whiskey Island Bar, by John Callely JR who brings to life the stories of the whiskeys being sampled, along with the overall story of Irish whiskey. The event takes place at an agreed time/date, online on your meetings platform, or ours – whatever suits you best. 

We cater for all interest levels and we make whiskey accessible to all! They are easy-going experiences and they enable your guests to learn something new. We invite plenty of chat and we love lots of questions! 

We now accept payment by corporate credit card; AMEX, Visa, Mastercard, Discover (subject to 3.4% – 5.4% fee)


We have developed a new virtual whiskey tasting especially for the USA. We have created a special online tasting experience based on really special gift-sets of Jameson and Redbreast whiskey families, some great whiskeys that lend themselves well to the Irish whiskey story. We also include a cocktail demonstration where we show our guests how to make some delicious Irish whiskey cocktails. Plus, we have enjoyed mastering the art of Irish coffee making through the years – we are delighted to show you how the perfect Irish coffee can be made in your kitchen at home!
