The First Tasting of Blue Spot: Lock-in Livestream

November 14, 2020

This Friday night on the Lock-in is another great night of Irish whiskey stories and sips.

This is the fourth installment of our Lock-ins to come live from Ireland and there’s a good warm fire blazing again this week (thanks, Netflix).

Every week we open three different bottles of whiskey and this week is an extra special one as we  crack open the brand new and much anticipated Blue Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, together with its siblings Yellow Spot and Red Spot.

To discuss this incredible new whiskey and the Spot range of whiskeys, we’re joined by Ger Garland, Midleton Whiskey Ambassador and Manager of the Brand Engagement and Advocacy Team, and Shamim De Brún, Drinks Industry Writer, wine and whiskey enthusiast and member of the Mitchell & Son team in Dublin.

We chat and sample all things Spot related and have our questions answered about the three fortified wine “M”s that contribute to these three unique whiskeys – Madeira, Malaga and Marsala.

So, wherever you are and whatever you’ll have in your glass, please join us for a few hours of craic and community. In these unusual and tough times, we need a Lock-in with our friends more than ever!





Irish whiskeys sipped this week:

  • Blue Spot Irish Whiskey
  • Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey
  • Red Spot Irish Whiskey




Join Barry Chandler, founder and host of Stories & Sips every Friday live on Facebook and YouTube at 7pm EST/4pm PST.

Each week Barry opens up a few different Irish whiskeys and invites a guest or two to join for conversation and craic.

The Lock-in Livestream is a great chance to raise a glass to our health, one another and another week under our belt.

Irish whiskey brings people together. Each Friday 1000s of Irish whiskey fans come together in one place – the Lock-in Livestream. Mark your calendar for this weekly celebration of all things Irish whiskey.
