John Clement Ryan in Cape Town late January 2014

I have admired John Clement Ryan from the very first time I was invited to sit in on a tasting he presented. I remained mesmerized by this larger than life man with his deep baritone voice and abundant charm. He closed the evening by playing his classic guitar and  singing familiar Irish folk songs
John Ryan is a direct descendent of the famous John Powers whiskey family. As John himself says - his veins run whiskey.

John Ryan will be hosting a dinner late January 2014 for a group of invited guests in Cape Town, South Africa. He is introducing us to the Pure Pot Still Irish whiskey's new to South Africa. The new Pure Pot Still Irish whiskey's being introduced to South Africa from November 2013 include: Redbreast, Middleton Very Rare, Green Spot and Yellow Spot Pure Pot Still whiskey's.

This is now my most anticipated evening for 2014. Seats to the dinner are sought after but limited. We have one seat reserved for a true whiskey lover, so If you wish to meet the awesome Mr John Clement Ryan as an invited guest to his whiskey dinner - publish a remarkable  comment. Remember, if you are not from Cape Town, South Africa you need to budget for travel expenses.
