Iconic whiskey distillers Jameson are making a final call for college graduates to apply for its renowned 2019/20 international graduate programme.

The programme is known globally for offering world-class experience and two international placements, but they've claimed that the latest candidates need one thing; 'Serious character'. 

The grad programme has been running for an outstanding 27 years, and gives graduates the chance to fulfil their personal and professional potential while working with an Irish brand with worldwide influence.

The successful candidate will be working on the international stage, and are supported by a competitive benefits package, multi-award winning training and development programme and a global support network.

The leader of Jameson's programme, Sinéad D'Arcy, commented that;

“The Jameson International Graduate Programme is a truly unique programme offering graduates three-years’ experience in a marketing role, in one of over 50 countries across the world."

"Every year we look for driven, charismatic and creative graduates, from a range of diverse backgrounds, to serve as brand ambassadors in cities across the world," she added.

Boy, do we have the event for you. As everyone knows, Ireland has some of the best whiskey in the world, and we're also pretty damn good at drinking it too. 

What if, let's say, you could get a cocktail masterclass, a photography session, a copper etching class AND pizza…. all in the one place?

You read that right, it's possible. Roe & Co. Irish whiskey are celebrating reinvention through a series of creative workshops, and tickets are now available for just €25

The newly revived Dollard Printing House on the Quays has been totally transformed for the regular workshop sessions.

Alan Mulvihill is hosting the cocktail masterclass, as a Roe & Co ambassador. He'll be teaching you how to create delicious cocktails so you can impress all your mates at house parties and pre-drinks.

Alex Sapienza will be teaching the art of the portrait, as a wet plate photographer. It's basically a process of extreme light exposure that creates an amazing raw style of imagery being developed on a sheet of metal.

Pretty cool, right? He's leading an hour-long workshop to discuss the art form. Don't miss that one.

Nothing screams Christmas quite like a perfectly decorated tree and a tall glass of your favourite drink – so it was only naturally that some absolute genius would create a product that combined the two.

Introducing, the gin-filled bauble.

The Lake Distillery has just launched its collection of boozy decorations, and honestly, December can't come quick enough.

Sold in sets of six, the baubles can be filled with a choice of gin, whiskey or vodka.

The gin set includes a Cumbrian variety, a sloe gin liquor and a damson gin, all of which are made by the distillery.

The whiskey set comes with six baubles each containing the distillery's own unique blend, while the vodka selection offers a triple- distilled variety as well as caramel and espresso vodka liqueurs.

You can pick up a set (or two) at findmeagift.co.uk for £39.99 (approx. €44.56).

Looks like we're in for a very merry Christmas altogether!


Ireland may be in the throes of gin mania, but whiskey will forever be a classic. 

If you want to try a darker liquor, then there's no better way to sample something than for free, right? 

Prizefight Whiskey is offering fans of the spirit the opportunity to try a tasting of the rich beverage.

For the month of August, there will be a number of whiskey tastings happening in venues across Dublin. 

One of which is kicking off tomorrow evening at Redmonds in Ranelagh. 

Brand ambassador Ben Curtis will be on hand to lead the tasting and answer questions.

'Prizefight is collaborative Irish whiskey, distilled and aged in Ireland, and finished in American rye casks,' reads the event description. 

'On August 10, we'll be at Redmonds in Dublin offering up a taste. Come spot by and learn what makes Prizefight such a knockout with brand ambassador Ben. '

Can't make it tomorrow night? Never fear. 

Other tastings will be happening on August 17 at Gibney's Malahide, and on August 25 at James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Store, 119 Grafton Street.


Many grandmothers fancy just a little glass of wine or some sherry and they're happy out. But the good people over at Observ sat these grannys down and asked them to try Fireball Whiskey, a popular cinnamon whiskey drink in America. 

Now, when they start off, none of them seem too keen to try the spicy drink, and it clearly makes a large impact when their faces completely change. You can even see them wince as they take their first sip. 

But five or six sips later (and a few shots), they begin to actually like it. The granny that took the shot even thinks they should go out dancing. #Standard. 

All we want to do now is sit our grannys down and have a couple of drinks with them!
