Sip Me, I’m Irish. Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day Like a True Irishman
3/2/2017 9:25:45 PM
If you’re Irish (or even if you’re not) everyone knows that St. Patrick’s Day is the Holy Grail of Irish holidays. To really get into the spirit you need to keep a few things in mind:
• Wear green (although certainly cute, green underwear doesn’t really count)
• Start your day with a bright green bagel (you can go carb-free the rest of the week)
• Enjoy your favorite Irish foods—whether it be corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread or a big pot of boiled potatoes—some hearty Irish fare is just what’s called for on March 17th
• Sip your favorite beer, with a side of green. Don’t fear the dye, it’s the only day all year that it’s acceptable to drink emerald suds
• Toast to Ireland with your favorite Irish Whiskey. Beautiful, amber colored liquid gold in your glass. Smooth, aromatic, with an ultra long silky finish.
What? You don’t have any Irish Whiskey? Read on about some of our favorites and then come in and get yours:
Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey
A blend of their own unique triple distilled malt whiskey and a lighter grain whiskey. You’ll notice it’s rich, smooth warming taste almost instantly. It’s an easy drinking, versatile whiskey that can be enjoyed neat, over ice or with your favorite mixer.
Tullamore D.E.W. Original Irish Whiskey
Born in the heart of Ireland in 1829, with a complex taste derived from three types of grain, triple distillation and the blend of all three Irish whiskeys. Early fresh fruit leads to a definite light spike followed by some toasted wood which evolves into a delicious vanilla sweetness in this whiskey.
Kilbeggan Traditional Irish Whiskey
Easy going and approachable, but with its own distinctive style. The finest grain and malt whiskeys are blended together for a smooth, sweet taste and lovely malt finish, a characteristic of our pot still that is over 180 year old and still at the heart of Kilbeggan Irish whiskey.
Jameson Irish Whiskey Black Barrel Select Reserve 80°
Twice charred for a good measure, it’s a triple distilled blend of rich pot still and grain whiskey that is matured in a mixture of sherry casks and bourbon barrels. The flavor is intense and enhanced – the grain whiskey in specially flame charred bourbon barrels delivers more concentrated spice, nutty notes and vanilla sweetness, while the pot still whiskey in sherry casks adds sherry fruit flavors and a rich finish.
Green Spot Irish Whiskey Pot Still
Crafted in the heart of Ireland from malted and un-malted barley, which are milled and mashed before being distilled through a traditional pot still. An aroma of butterscotch, caramel, honeyed oak, pine and orange that gives way to notes of citrus, tart apples, plums and apricots on the palate. The finish is smooth yet slightly spicy, with a touch of cinnamon and ginger.
Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Distilled in the old Irish tradition this pure pot still single malt whiskey uses only the most natural Irish ingredients of barley and fresh spring water. The resulting whiskey is then left to peacefully mature in oak casks stored in 200-year-old granite warehouses allowing it to develop its full flavor and character.
