It’s a marvelous day to be Irish! The Feast of St. Patrick marks an important date on the religious and cultural calendar. And while this special holiday has evolved into more of a celebration, with lively parades and parties taking place worldwide, it is a reminder of Ireland’s epic history and rich heritage.
At The Malt Gallery, we love all things Irish, especially whiskey. Did you know that it’s one of the oldest distilled spirits in Europe? While it was first recorded in 1405, almost a century before Scotch, it is believed that monks introduced Irish whiskey much earlier, having learned the technique of distillation during their travels.
We believe that Irish whiskey should be enjoyed year-round, and not just on St. Patrick’s Day, which is why we are proud to offer an excellent selection of bottles at our boutiques and through our user-friendly online shop. Savor the taste of Bushmills, Jameson, Connemara or Redbreast, and be transported to faraway lands.
Salim Heleiwa, general manager of The Malt Gallery, tells us more about some of the unique characteristics of our recommended Irish whiskey brands.
“As one of the oldest distilleries in the world, Bushmills’ license dates back to 1608. It is known for its thick, rich spirits, with hints of peat and a smooth smokiness that gives it a very specific character in Ireland.”
“The bestseller of all Irish blends, Jameson is famous for its extra smoothness and creaminess, which makes it one of the easiest whiskies to drink, hence the most popular. It’s a go-to spirit for bartenders as it is versatile and works really well with ginger ale.”
“This is the only heavily peated single malt in Ireland, but it is typically Irish: very grassy, fresh and mineral tasting.”
“Redbreast is renowned for its Single Pot Still whiskeys, a real Irish tradition and the definitive expression of the Irish spirit.”
