The jaded history of Irish whiskey worldwide is shrouded in a tumultuous story of tax evasion – and in the modern age – late night shots at the bar. However, Irish whiskey is more than a shot; it is a dynamic spirit of the ages that can be worked into many drinks, both classic and modern.
“Fuisce”, or “uisce beatha” in its native Irish, has long since been in the shadow of its more dominant neighbour, Scotch. Irish whiskey is lighter and more fragrant, with higher-end products offering a smoother finish due to their triple distillation.
