Top 10 Irish whiskeys for St. Patrick’s Day

11th March, 2013 by Becky Paskin

Whether you’re celebrating with family or friends this 17 March, what better way to toast the patron saint of Ireland than with a glass of Irish whiskey for St. Patrick’s Day.

Jameson St Patricks Day

Jameson’s St. Patrick’s Day bottle

Most revellers this St. Paddy’s Day will likely head for one of two classic Irish drinks – a pint of Guinness, or a slug of Jameson, likely from the brand’s specially-designed bottle.

While the latter is the largest-selling Irish whiskey brand in the world, we think St. Patrick’s Day is somewhat special and deserves an equally exceptional drink to celebrate.

We’ve racked our brains and dug out our favourite Irish whiskeys from aged blends to single pot stills and single malts.

With some brands now extinct thanks to Beam cutting Cooley Distillery’s supply contracts to third parties, we picked out a bunch of spirits we know for sure are still available.

Have we missed any out? Do you have a favourite we haven’t mentioned? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

    Fairly shocked not to see The Irishman brand of whiskey’s here. Everyone to their own I suppose, but with the release of the 12 Year Old Single Malt I was sure you’d have them in it too. Or the Writers Tears whiskey???? Would find it hard not to rate it as one of the best around 🙂
