Once the most popular liquor in the world, Irish Whiskey is now often overshadowed by its closest cousin in the spirit world, Scotch. But that is changing! Roughly half of Ireland’s current distilleries have been founded just in the last five years, and Irish Whiskey is currently experiencing a global revival. How better to embrace the reemergence of this subtly sweet and spicy spirit than with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration? Join us at the farm as we explore this regional whiskey, which is balanced, approachable, and infinitely mix-able. We’ll taste 3 different Irish Whiskies, then each guest will make three distinct cocktails while we discuss the history of the liquor and stories behind St. Patrick’s Day itself. Guests will end the evening with an appreciation of Irish Whiskey, the recipes for all cocktails made, and the confidence to recreate the drinks at home.
