St. Patrick’s Day is arguably the biggest holiday in the bar industry and although it is definitely a huge Irish/American Holiday it’s tied into real Irish History.
So this year we decided to ditch the green beer and ditch the Leperchaun outfit and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with real Irish heritage and real Irish Whiskey!
We really are in for a weird St Patrick’s Day this year thanks to the current state of things, as bars and restaurants in many parts of the country are closed! But luckily for you all we’re bringing you some Irish Whiskey Cocktails to make at home to help your quarantine be a little more interesting!
The real St. Patrick was born Maewyn Succat in the fifth Century Roman-Britain. He was kidnapped by Irish Maurauders and brought to Ireland as a slave, but later escaped. he then returned to Ireland as a Christian Missionary and is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Although he was never formally Cannonized he is known as “The Apsotle of Ireland” and is a venerated figure in the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Lutheran Churches and in the Eastern Orthodox as equal to the apostles and Enlightener of Ireland.
And what better way to celebrate than with real Irish Whiskey? Bushmills is the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world having first gotten their license in 1608. The Pot Still is the official trademark of Bushmills and it celebrated 400 years in production in 2008 having weathered many storms such as rising taxes on Barley, the second world war stopping production and American Prohibition slowing sales. It also gained fame when James Joyce mentioned it in his Novel Uysses and had the bank of Ireland print pictures of it’s distillery on it’s bank notes to celebrate it’s 400 years of distilling!
In this episode we bring you three elegant Irish Whiskey Cocktails each using the three major expressions of Bushmills Irish Whiskey and I hope you all have a great Holiday, Enjoy responsibly, try the drinks and please please please stay healthy!!!
