Since tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to make sure we had a decent intro to Irish whiskey on the Bit by a Fox Podcast for the occasion. And I couldn’t think of anyone better than Irishman, Irish whiskey expert and Tullamore D.E.W. brand ambassador,Tim Herlihy to charm us through this Irish whiskey lesson.
In this week’s episode, Tim breaks down what the difference is between Irish whiskey and other whiskey categories, he fills us in on a bit of history and what makes Irish whiskey so special. We also learn exactly how the Irish truly celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Hint – it doesn’t involve green beer. Tim also shared with us his favorite Irish whiskey cocktail, The Tipperary.
