Find the perfect match at Pearse Lyons Distillery

Whether it’s whiskey, gin or a tour and tasting experience, you are sure to find your perfect Valentine’s gift at Pearse Lyons Distillery.

For those of you looking for a unique experience, why not take a tour and tasting experience in our boutique distillery located in Dublin’s historic Liberties. As part of our Valentine’s package, couples or friends, can tour the distillery on a combination ticket for two adults on February 14th or 15th, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

This Valentine’s package includes a Ha’Penny Gin or Pearse Whiskey cocktail on arrival, a fully guided tour of our 800-year-old site and newly refurbished distillery, which sits in the former St. James’ Church. At our tasting bar, guests will enjoy 3 samples (3 whiskeys or 3 gins). Not only will they discover the difference between each of the spirits, but they will leave with a box of our exclusive hand-made Bean and Goose ‘Distiller’s Choice’ whiskey chocolate truffles to share with their loved one. Tickets for two cost €50 and are available to purchase at pearselyonsdistillery.com.

For those of you that can’t join our tour and tasting experiences, you can purchase our gins and whiskeys directly from our Visitor Centre. Our Ha’Penny Rhubarb Gin at only €40.00 is sure to delight this Valentine’s for those pink gin lovers. If your other half is a whiskey fan, why not pair our Pearse Distiller’s Choice with our exclusive handmade whiskey truffles for €60.00? For more information on our whiskey range, check out our website.

Still can’t decide what to get? Let your loved one decide with a Pearse Lyons Distillery Gift Card. This card can be used just like cash and goes towards all experiences, whiskeys, gins and items in our gift shop.

Please enjoy Pearse Whiskey and Ha’Penny Gin responsibly.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and it’s time to start thinking of a simple gift that will put a smile on your Dad’s face. Here at Pearse Lyons Distillery we have got you covered for the perfect Father’s Day gift. If your ‘auld lad’ is a fan of ‘the whiskey’, or history for that matter, a visit to the distillery is the perfect excuse to spend some quality time together. With that in mind we’ve created an exclusive Pearse Whiskey Experience for two for only €50.

What does this include?
This offer includes a one-hour guided tour, hosted by local Storytellers, which will walk you and your ‘Da’ through the life of the former St. James Church and how it came to be Pearse Lyons Distillery. Our Storytellers will regale you and ‘Pops’ with intriguing tales dating back to the 12th Century before you enter the distillery to smell, touch and taste each step of the whiskey distilling process. Here, you and the ‘old man’ will have the opportunity to chat with our distillers and see first-hand how to produce some of the finest Irish Whiskey Dublin has to offer.

Taste four unique Pearse Irish Whiskeys

That’s not all, at our tasting bar, Pearse’s Place, you will have the opportunity to taste four unique Irish Whiskeys; Pearse Original, a grain and malt whiskey blend aged in bourbon casks for 3-5 years. Pearse Distiller’s Choice, a blend of grain and malt whiskey aged in bourbon and sherry casks for 4-9 years. Pearse Founder’s Choice, a distinctive 12-year old single malt and finally Pearse Cooper’s Select, a grain and malt whiskey originally ages in bourbon casks and re-casked in Oloroso sherry casks to create a full flavoured special finish.

Wait, there’s more! You and ‘the auld fella’ can then both enjoy a signature TPL cocktail to toast Fatherhood and to the fact that, there is no one quite like your Dad!

(And if you want to keep walking down memory lane then you can pop into our local, McCann’s Bar). This offer is available to purchase online up until June 17 and is valid until July 31, 2019.

However, if time is of the essence, you can pick up a gift card or a bottle of our finest Pearse Irish Whiskey from our visitor centre. For more information please contact info@pearselyonsdistillery.com or call us on +353 (0) 1 6916000.
