RAISE A GLASS FOR IRISH WHISKEY DAY 

WEDNESDAY 3RD MARCH  

 “What whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for.” Irish proverb 

In honour of Irish Whiskey Day today, which celebrates all things “three” in the world of Irish Whiskey, we’ve rounded up three delicious cocktail recipes that you can make from the comfort of your own home to mark the occasion.  

The third day of the third month marks an important date in every true whiskey fan’s calendar. Traditionally, it’s a celebration of “three” three types of Irish whiskey (single malt, single grain, and single pot still), the signature triple distillation process, and a distillation period of at least three years.
