From traditional pairings to the new kids on the block, we’ve got you covered with the best Irish meal and drink combinations to serve up this St. Patrick’s Day.
Let’s talk whiskey!
There are some great things happening in the whiskey world. People love to drink all different kinds of whiskey (and whisky—yes, they’re spelled differently and actually are slightly different products!).
Whether you’re looking for an Irish whisky, Scotch, Canadian whisky, or other variations of this spirit, there’s a lot to explore and a lot to enjoy. That’s why there’s an increase in the number of women drinking whiskey, as well as an increase in the number of women-owned distilleries around the United States and beyond.
"Cream as rich as an Irish brogue; coffee as strong as a friendly hand; sugar sweet as the tongue of a rogue; and whiskey smooth as the wit of the land." - Joseph Sheridan
"I don't mind growing old. If I have to go before my time, this is how I'll go – cigarette in one hand, glass of Scotch in the other." — Ava Gardner
And, so it is with those who prefer Scotch "neat" over any other spirit. It's an eloquent drink with a special allure that ignites passion by those who sip and savor this whiskey. And, it is a whisky indeed (for more on the different spellings, click here). There's Scotch Whisky, there's Bourbon Whiskey, and there's Canadian Whiskey. The big difference is that each different country has an overabundance of different grains that they used to distill that particular "juice."
And one rule of thumb that's important to always remember: much like Champagne must be made in Champagne, France, Scotch can only be made in Scotland.
