    Of course, we have plenty of our favourite wineries returning to fair,...

  • Break out the Bubbles this Mother’s Day!

    Not that we should need an excuse to spoil the Mothers in our lives, but Mother’s Day is a great reminder to do so. 

    And of course, when it comes to wine, nothing says treat, quite like a bottle of bubbly.

    Regular readers will know that Just last week I was writing about Prosecco, so for today I will be focusing on traditional-method sparkling wines; two Champagnes and one v...

  • Pick up a Prosecco.

    With 20% off our entire range of Proseccos as part of our Italian wine sale, there can be no better time to pop in to your local O’Briens store and pick up a bottle of Ireland’s favourite fizz or even to branch out and try something new as we also have a number of other Prosecco-style wines included in the line-up.

    Of course, I’m fully aware that the vast majority of Prosecco enjo...

  • A Right Pair

    This week I’m taking a look at Whiskey and craft beer pairing and for the week that’s in it sticking to all things Irish. Far from a whiskey chaser quickly washed down with a beer we are looking at beers and whiskeys that work well together and compliment both.

    The reason whiskey and beer pair so well is because, in essence, a whiskey is a beer that has been distilled, wher...

  • A taste of ‘la Dolce Vita’

    Our Italian wine and Prosecco sale starts this Thursday, so I was inspired to have a look at matching some Italian wines with some classic Italian dishes.

    Italy probably produces the most diverse range of grape varieties and wine-styles of any country, but if there is one thing which unifies all these wines, it is a common vision among winemakers to primarily produce wines whic...

  • What’s New

    One of the great things about Irish craft beer is that there are constantly new beers to try and this month is no different. Here are just a few picks from the last couple of weeks with a mix of new core beers and limited releases.

    For those of an adventurous mind set try the collaboration between White Hag and MacIvors Cider, Silver Branch Apple Sour. For this White Hag brewed...

  • Just Arrived!

     

    One of the best things about this job is that with our constantly evolving wine-range there is always something new to try, and while January and February can be a little quieter on that front, things kick up a gear in Spring with an abundance of newly-made wines in the tasting room awaiting sign-off and lots of new wines hitting the shelves in our stores.

  • Reviving a Spirit

    There is perhaps no other drink that brings with it such a great degree of infamy in the public mind as absinthe. But what is absinthe and is its reputation truly warranted?

    Absinthe is distilled in a similar method to gin, where the botanicals are macerated in base alcohol and redistilled. A wide range of herbs can be used in the production of absinthe with the primary three...

  • Spring Sipping

    It’s hard to believe that the first day of Spring falls next week, ‘Tempus Fugit’ and all that aside, I thought now would be the perfect time to focus in on some fresh white wine choices to pair with the lighter dishes that will soon be appearing on our tables.

    Of course, if I wanted to play it safe we could look at Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, I could certainly reco...
