Celebrating Irish Whiskey. Together.

More than the liquid in a bottle....

Whiskey - invented by the Irish and copied the world over, yet nothing comes close to the original. More than the liquid in a bottle alone, Irish whiskey sparks conversation, builds friendships, inspires stories and gives us the sips we deserve.

Irish whiskey has been bringing people together for centuries - to laugh, to cry, to connect, to build community. We may find ourselves in a world that feels very different today than it did a year ago, but one constant remains - Irish whiskey’s ability to connect us, to engage us, to inspire us.

At Stories & Sips, we value “togetherness” above all else. Everything we do, from podcasts to livestreams to virtual events, is designed to bring us closer to one another and to the people and places that give us the Irish whiskey we treasure.

Let’s get our sips on, let’s raise a glass - to each other and to the next glass and the next one.
