SSP opens Whiskey Bread at DUB
SSP and Dublin Airport today announced the opening of the Whiskey Bread Bar in Terminal 2, which showcases the products of two of Dublin’s well-known producers, Teeling Whiskey and McCloskey’s Bakery.
Whiskey Bread is located in Terminal 2’s US Preclearance area and caters to all US bound passengers.
In addition to a range of Teeling whiskeys, the bar features a wide variety of Irish and international whiskeys. An online whiskey quiz helps customers navigate the selection and gives them an opportunity to create their own whiskey flight. These flights also come with individual tasting notes for customers to take away with them as a souvenir of their visit.
Whiskey Bread Bar, which affords customers spectacular views across the Dublin Airport airfield, celebrates the story of Ireland and America and the culinary links between the two nations.
The name and concept of Whiskey Bread Bar pays homage to a piece of culinary history which unites both America and Ireland. Whiskey Bread derives from soda bread, which is most commonly attributed to Ireland but has its origins in Native Americans being the first people to use soda to leaven their bread.
To accompany the food menu, Whiskey Bread Bar will also serve its own tailor-made whiskey-steeped soda bread, created in partnership with McCloskey’s Bakery.
“We are so proud to be working with two outstanding local partners, and these two Irish favorites are sure to be a welcome addition to the stunning new facilities at Dublin Airport,” said Quote from Simon Davidson, Managing Director, SSP Ireland, in today’s announcement. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide a location in which those who have the time to indulge can enjoy sampling our large selection of whiskeys, whilst appreciating the long and storied history of Ireland and America.”
“We are thrilled to add the Whiskey Bread Bar to our extensive food and beverage offering at Dublin Airport,” said Dalton Phillips, Chief Executive of daa, which operates Dublin Airport. “This new bar will greatly enhance the passenger experience on offer in Terminal 2 and provides us with a fantastic opportunity to work with some popular Irish partners. We are excited to continue working with SSP to bring great dining experiences to the airport.”
