Recognised as the only super premium Collection of Irish whiskeys, The Wild Geese® Irish Whiskey Collection is internationally acclaimed and a multi award winning Collection which has been acknowledged 'Best Irish Whiskey' three times.
Combines all the smoothness you come to expect from Irish whiskey with some memorable theatrics on the palette. It feels like something even the most jaded/seasoned whisky drinker will experience as different (and I’m neither jaded nor seasoned) As it is so very different to every other single malt I’ve tried up to this point, it might be an acquired taste. I’m not too keen on it (yet?). The taste is super distinctive and smooth as silk.

Christmas cocktails: Chilli & Chocolate Rusty Nail
Here’s one for those who like a bit of heat in their glass. And we don’t mean the fire that comes from a flame. This warming whiskey (yes, that ‘e’ is intended – we’re talking Irish here) marries chocolate and chillies to great effect. Just be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling those chillies…
25ml THE WILD GEESE® Classic Blend Whiskey
1 fresh chilli (mildly hot)
20ml chocolate liqueur
2 drops of chocolate bitters
grated chocolate, orange zest and chilli to garnish
Muddle the chilli in a rocks glass to release the flavours. Add the liqueur, bitters and mix. Add the ice and stir. Add the Drambuie and the whiskey and stir all ingredients together. To garnish, grate some dark chocolate over the top of the drink, spritz with the orange zest and finish with a piece of chocolate and a chilli on top.

Winter has well and truly set in, and there’s nothing we look forward to more after a bone-chillingly cold day than getting home and relaxing in the warmth with thick socks and a few festive-smelling candles. Throw a few winter spice cocktails into the mix, and we love December more than any other month of the year.
Luckily, the team at The Wild Geese® , pioneers of exceptional rum and whiskey mixing, agree – and they’ve shared some of their top festive season cocktails recipes with us, and with you. Here you go. Enjoy! (And remember to drink responsibly.)
