Kirker Shamrock reveals autumn campaignBy Alice Brooker
Irish whiskey Kirker Shamrock has unveiled an online campaign to highlight autumnal cocktails that can be made from home.
The whiskey brand, said to be Ireland’s only four-province blend, is rolling out the campaign this week.
The campaign features recipe videos, presented by brand ambassador Peter Moore.
The recipes include: The Kirker Tipperary, comprising Kirker Shamrock, sweet vermouth, green chartreuse, and orange bitters; The Kirker Old Fashioned, which mixes Kirker Shamrock, sugar syrup, and Angostura Bitters; Kirker Whiskey Sour, a blend of lemon juice, sugar syrup, and Kirker Shamrock; Kirker Irish Coffee, which sees a blend of coffee, demerara syrup, Kirker Shamrock and whipped cream; and a Kirker Collins – lemon juice, sugar syrup, and Kirker Shamrock topped with soda water.
To create Kirker whiskey, the brand uses three different styles of Irish whiskey in a single blend, said to be ‘quite unusual’.
Single grain, single malt and single pot still whiskeys all feature, ‘enriched’ by first fill ex-Bourbon and oloroso Sherry casks.
The resulting liquid contains a blend of 60% grain and 40% malt/pot still whiskey.
Richard Ryan, Drinksology Kirker Greer co-founder and head of liquid development, crafted the bottling.
The 43% ABV whiskey is distributed internationally by Kirker Greer Spirits in countries including Germany, Poland and France.
