The Rise in Popularity of Irish Whiskey
The Irish are well known for their whiskey. The word “whiskey” is actually taken from a phrase in the Irish language that means “water of life”. The year 2014 has seen a rise in the popularity of Irish whiskey. Irish whiskey has become the fastest growing spirit category in the U.S. While we all love the popular brands of Jameson and THE WILD GEESE®, other brands are becoming quite popular. While most people like to drink whiskey neat or on the rocks, it mixes great with other flavors and is becoming popular to use in cocktails. Irish whiskey bars are becoming quite popular as well.
