Go on a journey with your Irish Whiskey 360° Passport and learn the stories behind Ireland's incredible whiskey distilleries.
The Irish Whiskey Association is encouraging people to undertake a tour and tasting at a member distillery visitor center - and to document their visit by collecting an Irish Whiskey 360° Passport stamp.
