Month of March - St Patrick's Day March 17th, Wearing of the Green, Guiness, Whiskey, Luck of the Irish, and the shamrock..................

The Shamrock, a 3 leaf "clover” is the symbol of Ireland and prevalent in the month of March when we celebrate St. Patrick's Day around the world.

The three leaves of a shamrock are said to stand for faith, hope and love. A fourth leaf is where we get the luck from. The four-leafed clover, or “lucky clover”, is an uncommon variation of the three-leafed clover, and widely considered to be a symbol of good luck. Because they are a mutation, they are rare, and not found in the same abundance as the shamrock, and thus, considered lucky. 

So, for Novice and Wanna Be Whiskey drinkers, this is your Lucky Day!  Join our Whiskey Ambassador Jennifer Owen for a Beginner's Irish Whiskey Tasting on Thursday March 12.  4 different Irish whiskies will be tasted, compared and discussed.  In addition, Jennifer will introduce you to the wonders of the official whiskey tasting glass, The Glencairn.  Revered by Whiskey Lovers everywhere, this specially designed glass will enhance your entire tasting experience.

Register early as space is limited.  We will offer 10% off all purchases on whiskey (and anything else in the store including Glencairn glasses that night!)

Bring a friend, wear something green and be prepared to have some fun while learning about this fascinating spirit!
