Tastings & Events

Here at James Fox, we take pride in our whiskey and cigar expertise and use every opportunity to share it with our customers and visitors. For that reason, we often host and co-host tasting and sampling sessions, as well as a variety of other events, most of which are open to the public and take place in our store, in the heart of Dublin.

Have a look below to see what's coming up – dates and times are subject to change.


April 2019

Gin Week 2019

You can never have too much gin, as the old saying goes! We've invited people behind some of the best gins in Ireland and beyond, so have a look at the agenda and feel free to visit us during any of over 10 different tastings! All sessions are free to attend and will be co-hosted by the distillery or distributor's representatives – they'll be curious to hear your impressions and happy to answer any questions you may have.

And to top it all off, any gin purchased during the event (either in-store or online) will come with a FREE 50cl bottle of premium tonic water by Franklin & Sons!
