Celebrating St Patrick’s Day in the defiant spirit of Slane Irish Whiskey
Slane Irish Whiskey is taking its signature Triple Casked blend across the Irish Sea this St Patrick’s day to share its unique St Patrick’s Day story and spirit in bars across the UK. Born in the legendary Boyne Valley in the historic grounds of Slane Castle, Slane is Irish Whiskey amplified, steeped in tradition and intrinsically linked to St Patrick’s Day.
Overlooking the distillery is the sacred site of the Hill of Slane. In 433 AD, Ireland’s iconic patron Saint scaled the hill and lit a fire in direct defiance of the High King at nearby Tara.
That small act of starting a fire was a major turning point in Patrick’s life and in the history of all Ireland. Patrick lit the Easter fire contrary to the Druidic law, changing the spiritual landscape of Ireland forever.
Celebrating Patrick’s defiant spirit, bars across the UK from London to Cardiff, Bristol, Liverpool and Belfast will feature a Slane St Patrick’s Day cocktail menu from March with some venues showcasing Slane Cold Brew Cocktails helping whiskey and coffee lovers celebrate the Irish national holiday in style. Slane Irish Whiskey is triple distilled for smoothness, triple casked for rich character and therefore the perfect match with MONIN®️ Caramel Syrup and Cold Brew Coffee.
Co-founder of Slane Irish Whiskey, Alex Conyngham said:
“St Patrick’s Day is the world’s most celebrated national day by those of Irish descent or who simply love Ireland. To this day, the Conyngham family of Slane Castle boldy raise a glass of pure Irish Whiskey remembering the defiant spirit of St Patrick on his national day.
Patrick’s spirit lives on through the whiskey making at the distillery, through the progressive values of the Conyngham family of Slane who returned exceptional whiskey-making to Ireland’s mythical Boyne Valley for generations to come. We look forward to honouring Patrick’s courage in bars across the UK on March 17th boldy celebrating St Patrick’s spirit with Slane Irish Whiskey.”
