Irish Whiskey Association tourism initiative IrishWhiskey360° has launched an Irish whiskey passport as part of a campaign called "Discover Ireland's Whiskey Distilleries".
IrishWhiskey360° said that its new whiskey passport creates a record of individuals' journeys through Irish whiskey distilleries via the collection of stamps at each distillery they visit.
Visitors who collect six stamps can become an IrishWhiskey360° Champion, which will result in special rewards that are to be announced.
