As we roll into March with a hint of spring in the air and the Rugby 6 Nations in full vigour, thoughts turn to Ireland and St. Patrick's Day on 17th March. 

A key social date in any pub's calendar, it coincides nicely with the finale of the rugby set to play out between Ireland and Wales in what could be the title decider. Now is a great chance to assess your Irish offering and stock up in time for the big day.

Did you know that Guinness sells an amazing 7.5 million pints on St Patrick's Day - almost twice what it sells on a standard day?! Guinness tastes so smooth thanks to the 300,000,000 bubbles in every pint. It has also been enjoyed at every St. Patrick's Day since Arthur Guinness set up his brewery in 1759.

Enjoy a pint of red this St. Patrick's Day... Yes that's right, Guinness, known as 'the black stuff', is actually ruby red in colour. Hold it up to the light to see for yourself.


Add a little Irish-American history to your bar with Dublin distilled The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey.

During the late 1800s in the depths of depraved lower Manhattan, New York, The Dead Rabbits, a notorious Irish immigrant street gang ruled the streets as sworn enemies of the anti-immigrant Bowery Boys.

Today, this fine, thrilling whiskey is crafted by Master Distiller, Darryl McNally of the Dublin Liberties Distillery in Dublin's traditional home of distilling. A punchy, heavy-hitting whiskey with attitude. Bourbon and vanilla are strong flavours that create a sweetness and light experience, whilst spice notes run riot to create this classic Irish with a definite edge.

Under the hustle and bustle of cobbled Dublin streets in the early 1900s, a rare whiskey was quietly making a name for itself. The simple act of marking barrels with spots of coloured paint would not only signify their age potential, but would become the namesake for this coveted whiskey, bonded and bottled by The Mitchells - a seventh generation family business. 

Green Spot was originally produced exclusively for the Mitchell family who, began trading in 1805 on 10 Grafton St. in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of fine wines and confectionery. Four generations later, the company is still in the wine and spirits business, under the stewardship of Jonathan Mitchell and his son Robert. 

A non age statement Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey comprising of pot still whiskeys aged between 7 and 10 years. Green Spot Whiskey has matured in a combination of new bourbon and refill bourbon casks as well as sherry casks; a delightful combination of fruit, toffee and malt. 

Named after an early 1900's hop store building at St. James's Gate where hops are still stored, Hop House 13 is a double-hopped lager made with Irish barley and aromatic hops and continues the 256 years of heritage and brewing excellence at St. James's Gate. 

A crisp and full-flavoured lager with subtle malty notes and fresh hop aromas with hints of apricot and peach. 


Ensure you have a range of Irish tipples this spring to help your customers celebrate St. Patrick's Day with style.
