#JamesonWhiskey like a queen!

Jameson is the centre of St Patricks day, and that was this day!  At this evening a Twitter Tasting of Jameson Whiskey was held. Alwynne Gwilt, alias Miss Whisky, was our hostess for the night and was filling in for Steve. Due circumstances he could’t make it. Alwynne did a fantastic job this evening with the #jamesonwhiskey Tweet Tasting.
