A fun idea for anyone back home for Christmas who is looking for something a little bit special to enjoy with family and friends.

2017’s Winter Gathering is an informal boat trip on the beautiful River Bann offering a relaxed and informative afternoon of whiskey sampling, food tasting and a light sprinkling of stunning scenery and wildlife on the Bann estuary.   A marvellous opportunity to appreciate our historic town from a different perspective at this most wonderful time of the year.

As we prepare to set sail, you will be greeted by our expert whiskey ambassador The Whiskey Lad with a dram of Coleraine Irish Whiskey.  On this unique whiskey tasting we will sample 3 more drams of Irish whiskey from two different distilleries infusing the method & history of each.  We will try Red Bush, the new kid on the block from Bushmills Irish whiskey and from Jameson Irish Whiskey comes Caskmates.  Our final sample will be the magnificent Redbreast 12 year old single pot still Irish whiskey.  On our return journey we will moor at the Cranagh Marina, where a warm winter’s welcome awaits.

Guests will be greeted with a traditional Christmas mulled punch and treated to a selection of delicious canapés celebrating our award-winning local produce. Guests can expect 2017 Blas na hEireann Silver award winner Corndale Farm chorizo, North Coast Smokehouse hot smoked salmon and locally reared Culmore Farm organic beef.

Soft drinks will also be available. ​
