A Virtual Tour of Hinch Distillery & Tasting of their Whiskeys: Lock-in Livestream

April 3, 2021

We had such a treat on this week’s Lock-in Livestream!
Jamie Cotter, Brand Manager of one of Ireland’s newest and most exciting distilleries, Hinch Distillery, took us on a virtual tour of this incredible new distillery just 20 minutes outside Belfast, from the comfort of our own homes.
Jamie led us around their still house, showed us their wash backs and gave us a glimpse of what a £15 million investment from founder Terry Cross has created.
We were then treated to a virtual tasting of three Hinch Distillery-released whiskeys:
— Hinch Peated Single Malt
— Hinch 10 year old Sherry Cask
— Hinch 5 year old Double Wood
These whiskeys are starting to find their way around the US and can currently be found in several states with a broader roll out in April.
We didn’t stop there! We were also treated to some tunes from special musical guests ‘Who Owns Ye?’, an acoustic duo that played for us from inside the distillery!
We might not be able to get to Ireland, but we’ll do our best to experience it in the meantime.

Irish whiskeys sipped this week:

  • Hinch Peated Single Malt
  • Hinch 10 year old Sherry Cask
  • Hinch 5 year old Double Wood
