As you know, St. Patrick’s Day (or Lá Fhéile Pádraig for our Gaeilgóirs) has long been a beacon of all things Irish. Whether it’s leprechauns, shamrocks, or whiskey, this proud display of Irishness has always been synonymous with festivity, fun, and craic.
While this St. Patrick’s Day we may be unable to celebrate as we normally do, how about we raise a Lambay Whiskey toast to this great Irish tradition, as we look forward to a brighter future.
Have you ever heard of “drowning the shamrock?”
As the story goes, it is said that on St Patrick’s travels he visited a pub, where his whiskey glass was not at the required measure that he had ordered. In response to this, Patrick told the barman that there was a devil in his cellar that fed on his dishonesty. Terrified by this, the barman vowed to change his ways. Sometime later Patrick returned to the pub to find the barman filling every ones’ glasses to the point of overflowing.
Now, as a relatively new brand, we, unfortunately, weren’t around back in those days, but we’re pretty sure that if we had been, St. Patrick would have been more than happy to imbue everyone’s glasses with our Lambay Small Batch Blend. And if you perchance were looking for something a little bit more festive this St. Patrick’s Day (and this century!), then the Irish Gold Rush cocktail is the Lambay libation for you.
