Tullamore Dew


As far as whiskey experts go, they don’t come more Irish True than Tullamore D.E.W. US Ambassador Tim Herlihy. Born and raised in Ireland, Tim began his whiskey career with the Cooley Distillery and has travelled to numerous distilleries across Ireland, Scotland, the US and beyond, studying firsthand the history of whiskey and the entire production process from malting to maturation

Initially Tim began his working career, at his Father’s family farm Belview Eggs where he helped manage the sales, marketing and egg production of 80,000 hens, before later turning his hand to Irish Whiskey.

In his role as Tullamore D.E.W Ambassador, Tim has presented at whiskey shows and cocktail weeks, presenting on Irish Whiskey History, Cocktails and one of his favourite topics, the Irish Pub. In 2016 Tim set off on a 30 day, Ultimate Irish Pub Tour, visiting all 50 states plus a district searching for the very best Irish Pubs across America in the build up to St.Patrick’s Day

In 2015 Tim was announced as Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky: Best Irish Whiskey Ambassador. In 2017 Tim set the record for the World’s Biggest Irish Coffee on National Irish Coffee Day, Jan 25th in Chicago and on St.Patrick’s Day he was the official toast master for the World’s Shortest St.Patrick’s Day Parade, in Hot Springs, Arkansas

An expert in Irish Whiskey history, process and tasting, a natural raconteur and never at a loss for a toast, Tim travels the US; educating, entertaining and sharing his passion for Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey.
