Happy St. Patrick’s Week!
At a time like this, the luck of the Irish would be nice to hold onto. The luck of the Irish dates back to the late 4th century when Saint Patrick was kidnapped at 16 years old. Fortunately, he was able to escape and he even returned with about 432 people to convert to Christianity in Ireland.
In order to honor their patron saint, Ireland holds religious services and feasts every March 17.

Aged in Three Woods,this is a whiskey for the connoisseur of aged malt whiskeys. To be savoured neat or with just a small drop of water, it is a proud expression of the centuries old tradition of malt whiskey distilling at the Old Bushmills Distillery.
Maturing in Oloroso sherry and bourbon before finishing in marsala casks gives this unique single malt whiskey its rich dried fruit and sherry complexity.
Very very fruity. Peaches, bananas, mango straight off the bat. These then give way to the sherry influence with marzipan, raisins, malt and a hint of allspice. If you’re smelling the aroma of a very fruity Irish Whiskey, that might be the luck of the Irish calling you.
