Spirit Spotlight: A Taste Of The Irish With Pogues Whiskey On St. Pattys

The Pogues Irish WhiskeyIn the U.S. on St. Patrick's Day, we parade around all dressed in green... usually drinking more than usual on a weeknight.

This St. Patty's Day, LATF discovered the perfect Irish Whiskey for your evening of celebration... The Pogues Irish Whiskey.

That's right.. it's a Whiskey from the groundbreaking Celtic punk band, The Pogues. So you can drink and dance to their music at the same time!

The spirit is crafted at one of Ireland’s last-standing independent distilleries, starting with pristine spring water from the remote River Ilen. This warmly aromatic whiskey carries fragrances of malts and cracked nuts, and has a sweet, smooth – yet intense – flavor, and a remarkably clean finish.

The West Cork Distillers’ team of Master Blenders for The Pogues Irish Whiskey have an impressive 80 years of collective whiskey-making experience. In 2014, they received Whisky Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award
