Not the Royal wedding: World whiskey day at Merchant House of Fleet Street

With the royal nuptials taking place on Saturday, it’s easy to forget that the 19th May is, in fact, World Whiskey Day. Independent Irish artisan distillers, The Dingle Distillery has partnered with Merchant House of Fleet Street to host an Exclusive World Whisky Day Lock-In.

Expect a complimentary once-in-a-lifetime Dingle Distillery Dream Dram for all, bespoke whiskey cocktails, an education in whiskies from across the globe, and 50% off one of London’s biggest collections of high-end scotch, bourbons and single malts. If that doesn’t counter all the hysteria around Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, nothing will. Just be sure to book a table.

The cocktails sound lovely. Owner and head mixologist Nate Brown has created a cocktail menu bar none (pun intended). He uses the distillery’s limited-edition, first-pot still whiskey release.
