So, there's going to be an Irish gin and cheese festival happening THIS May – and we are probably a lot more excited then we should be.
To celebrate some of Ireland's best gins and cheeses, the Burren Slow Food Festival, which will take place on 12th, 13th and 14th May 2017, will bring together food producers, chefs and writers for a weekend of talks, demonstrations and workshops.
And the best part?
There will be a huge showcasing of the best of Irish gin including Blackwater Gin, Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, Dingle Gin and Shortcross Gin.
Dublin’s leading mixologist Oisin Davies will also be there making unique cocktails with wild and foraged ingredients.
For the first time, Ireland’s raw milk cheese presidium will be at the event, hosting workshops and tastings of raw milk cheese, many of which are not widely available nationwide.
The presidium, which is made up of eleven artisan dairies work with their own distinctive style and techniques and share a common commitment to producing a safe, high-quality product using raw milk from their own cows or goats, or milk from nearby herds.
The three-day event will also include a farmers' market, foraging, children’s activities, the traditional Burren Slow Food Banquet as well as a champagne and seafood picnic in a boat under the Cliffs of Moher.
See ya there, ladies!
