The Lock-in Christmas Special: Lock-in Livestream

December 21, 2020

This was our first ever Lock-in Christmas Special – a chance to toast the end of the year, a safe and peaceful holiday and the New Year ahead.

It’s been a tough year for many, but this Lock-in was all about our wins this year, like the great friends we’ve all met through Irish whiskey, the amazing whiskeys we’ve all tasted and the hope that the world will return to normal next year.

As with any great party, we invited amazing guests who dropped in and out over the course of the evening from all over the world to share a drink, a toast, a song and a chat with us. We were joined by distillers, bonders, bottlers, ambassadors, singers, drinkers and storytellers.

The very talented Hannah Crowley made us laugh and cry with some familiar songs and new ones,  there were Stories & Sips giveaways, an appearance by an Irish wolfhound and we pulled out many of our favorite whiskeys of 2020.  Many agree this was the greatest Lock-in of them all!

If you could do with a great virtual Christmas session, ours was made for you.

Get your Christmas sweaters, festive drinks and find a comfortable seat to sit back and enjoy the replay of the Stories & Sips Lock-in Christmas Special. 





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.
