Irish Whiskey Brand To Host ‘Black Bush & Cheese’ Masterclasses

Bushmills Irish Whiskey is collaborating with renowned cheese affineur and founder of The Cheese Tasting Company, Ned Palmer, to host a series of whiskey and cheese pairing masterclasses across Ireland in November and December.

‘Black Bush & Cheese’ will take place in Dublin at Drury Buildings on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 December.

The exclusive events will bring the 2019 #BlackBushStories campaign to a close, following a busy calendar of immersive consumer experiences throughout the country.

Mastering The Craft 

The events are a first in Ireland for the London-based cheese expert and will see Palmer showcasing his favourite Irish cheeses as he joins Bushmills Brand Ambassador, Lauren McMullan, to introduce guests to the arts of both whiskey and cheese tasting.


The masterclass will explore the similarities between the crafts of Irish whiskey distillation and cheese making, uncovering the significance of the maturation process in each and how this reflects in their respective flavour profiles, the whiskey maker explained.

Alongside this, guests will explore a selection of complementary pairings of Bushmills’ whiskeys with artisan Irish cheeses and will have a go at creating their own pairings.
