Replay: Meet The Maker with Fionnán O’Connor

October 15, 2023

Replay now available


Fionnán O'Connor is acknowledged universally as the preeminent historian on Irish whiskey and its origins. No stranger to the Stories & Sips Whiskey Club, Fionnán was the star of our members-only seven-part podcast The History of Irish Whiskey last year and is the author of A Glass Apart, the go-to resource on Irish single pot still whiskey. 

With the announcement of a new book and an accompanying whiskey, Fionnán expands his repertoire to officially become an Irish whiskey "maker". Fionnán will join us for a members-only event where he will expand on his previous topic of the history of Irish whiskey and tackle the even-more-encompassing History of Distillation in Ireland, a fascinating topic complete with a cast of characters, fair share of anecdotes and a tremendous throughline to the whiskey we know today. 

This is your chance to ask questions directly of Fionnán and expand your knowledge of Irish spirits of all kinds as well as learn more about his upcoming new book, whiskey and community.
