About

Dave Mulligan (Bán Poitín) and renowned spirits historian

Sam MacDonald (High Sea Spirits, Teeling Whiskey and ex

head of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society) present a historical

evening entitled, “The Origin of Spirit”. The proud and

passionate Irish men will take you back in time to the first

discovery of distillation in Ireland. From here they will pair

historical events with long forgotten and one off spirits while

presenting their case that all Whiskey stems from Poitín and

not the other way around.

A brave move to host such an event in one of London’s

leading whiskey bars, Merchant House. This event is aimed at

bartenders, drinks trade and spirits enthusiasts alike. No

cover charge and a Poitín cocktail on arrival, it’s the perfect

Monday evening event to kick off the St Patrick’s Week

celebrations.
