  • Wood Key Brewing

    Wood Key Brewing began when Simon and Brian had been working in an Off licence in north Dublin, one of their customers, Andrew, came in and pitched the idea of setting up a business. Andrew was doing an MBA and wanted to put that learning into something he was passionate about. Craft beer came instantly to mind and Simon and Brian where the people who knew beer.

    They worked on ...

  • Our Wines in the Press

    In my blog last week, I highlighted some of our wines which had recently picked up awards at the big international wine competitions, so for today’s blog, I thought I’d look a little closer to home, and feature some of our wines which have been reviewed in the Irish Press over the last few weeks.

  • A Barrel Aged Birthday

    At the end of July Sligo’s award winning brewery The White Hag celebrated their third birthday. They did so in style by hosting a beer festival at the brewery, where the 1,000 people in attendance were treated to a range of over 60 beers with The White Hag range alongside over 50 beers from 22 different Irish and international breweries.

  • A Decidedly Mediterranean Gin

    Over the last couple of weeks I have picked out a number of new and interesting gins from our line-up. However, for this week’s blog I have focused on just one to fully understand the care and attention that goes into distillation of some of these great spirits. I could have picked from an array of great gins that showcase attention to detail with ingredients or distillation techn...

  • Treats for the Long Weekend

    This upcoming long weekend will surely see many dinner parties, celebrations, and informal gatherings as we all take advantage of the extra day off. Now, normally on the August bank holiday weekend, my blog would lean heavily toward BBQ wine tips, but unfortunately, the picture above might represent wishful-thinking as it doesn’t look like the weather is going to play ball.

  • Lighter reds for summer

    Whites and Rosé wines grab a lot of the attention in summer, and even when reds are mentioned, often it will be a big spicy wine to pair up with a BBQ.

    However, there is a wide range of lighter red wines which really come into their own when the sun is shining and some of them taste even better when lightly chilled.

  • Gin Travels

    There are just so many great gins to choose from in our gin sale, but where to start? Well I took a look at a trio of new Irish gins a couple of weeks ago (which you can check out here) so I thought it was time to do the same for some international gins. We have over 30 Irish and international gins on offer in our Gin Sale so here is just a taster of three imported gins, two new to our shelves...

    Whiplash is the passion project of Alex Lawes and  Alan Wolfe. Alex was an award-winning home brewer before turning pro as head brewer with Rye River. Alan takes care of the commercial side and "kicks back with the first beer off the line every time." Whiplash beers, brewed at Rye River and occasionally at other breweries around the country, won’t have a core range as such but instead will ...
