Last night saw the launch of the Dublin Cocktail Festival in Diep Le Shaker on Pembroke Lane. The festival takes place across almost 40 venues in Dublin from October 12th– 17th. Showcasing some of the best Irish drinks brands, each venue will be serving a unique cocktail creation exclusive to the festival. To avail of a 30% discount off each festival cocktail, a €5 wristband can be purchased at any of the venues which will be valid at all venues for the whole week. Other great offers on cocktails and food specials as part of the festival are available from The Taste.

There’s also a host of masterclasses and workshops taking place across the venues as part of the festival. The full line up can be seen here.
