Ramblings, Roadshows and Ross – A view from across the Pond

For this week’s post, we’re checking in with our brand ambassador Ross in the USA -Ross is sharing The Spirit of the City up and down the east Coast. Follow his journey on Instagram @DublinerWhiskeyUSA & Twitter @TheDublinerUSA                                            

Hello All,

It’s been a long journey from Dublin, but having finally landed on US soil and delighted to be spending my time bringing the #spiritofthecity to bars, restaurants and lucky drinkers along the East Coast. As the first Brand Ambassador for The Dubliner, I’ve had the privilege of introducing most people to it for the first time.

My first taste of this work was the whiskey guild tasting & review show in Morristown, NJ, where both consumers and retailers came to taste new whiskey expressions, along with a select few craft beers and wines. 

One of the best things about my job is being able to share a drink and a chat with someone, and see their reaction to The Dubliner when they taste it for the first time. People loved the taste of the whiskey, telling me it was perfect for sipping after a meal, with its smooth refreshing flavour. I told them it went down just as well before a meal! Our Whiskey and Honeycomb blew people away – there is nothing out there that tastes like it. Seeing this keeps me pumped – I don’t have to remind myself I have the best job in the world!
