Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon

Jack-McGarry-and-Sean-MuldoonNo other duo have done more to promote the use of Irish whiskey in the on-trade than Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon, of New York’s The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog. The pair, who previously worked at the award-winning The Merchant Hotel in Belfast, opened the saloon-style bar, inspired by the one of New York’s most notorious 19th century street gangs, in 2012.

With a menu full of historically-accurate drinks recipes, The Dead Rabbit claims to have the largest selection of Irish whiskey of any bar in the US, while McGarry and Muldoon travel the world promoting the spirit of their homeland, particularly single pot still Irish whiskeys.
