Paddy Irish Whiskey - Drink Secrets

Paddy Irish Whiskey

How to drink Paddy Irish Whiskey

First made in 1779 by Cork Distillery, Paddy Irish Whiskey is named after a salesman for the company who was very successful with selling the whiskey and his name was known in both Ireland and internationally when people referred to this brand of Irish whiskey.


It was popular in the 1920s and 1930s for people to buy their whiskey from wholesalers in barrels and then bottle it themselves to be sold, but Cork Distillery did not want to hurt the quality of their whiskey. They made their own whiskey and bottled it on their own and became known as one of the first distilleries to do this.


Distilled three times in the traditional Irish whiskey production process, Paddy Irish Whiskey is made using the highest quality in barley and water. This process that is used by the Cork Distillery ensures that their Irish whiskey has traits of being light and well balanced. Many people refer to Paddy Irish Whiskey as the softest of all the whiskeys in Ireland.


There are many ways that you can enjoy Paddy Irish whiskey as an addition to a drink or on its own. Irish whiskey is often used as one of the three ingredients in an Irish Car Bomb with Guinness Stout Beer and Irish Cream. You may also like the Irish whiskey on its own over ice or neat with no ice. Some people find that drinking it this way will give them a feeling of sophistication and many Whiskey connoisseurs will drink it this way.


You can also use Paddy Irish Whiskey to make your own home made Irish Cream in your kitchen. By mixing together one cup heavy cream, one can sweetened condensed milk, two cups Irish whiskey, one to two teaspoons of instant coffee granules, one to two tablespoons of chocolate syrup, one teaspoon vanilla extract, and one teaspoon almond extract in a blender you can create a delicious Irish Cream inexpensively and quickly. You can add different amounts to make it your own unique blend and customize it to how strong you would like it.
