Bring Holiday Cheer with Irish Whiskey Cocktails

Kilbeggan comes from Ireland’s oldest operating distillery. The whiskey is still produced using the original 180 year-old pot still located at the Kilbeggan Distillery in Ireland. Rather than being triple-distilled like most whiskeys, Kilbeggan is double-distilled to retain more flavor. As a result, Kilbeggan has a smoother, sweeter flavor which makes it a great choice for both mixing in cocktails as well as sipping on the rocks, neat, or in one of either festive holiday cocktails (as featured below). Crafted by top Irish bartenders to highlight the holiday season, the Kilbeggan® Gingerbread Crunch and Kilbeggan® Boyne is a surefire hit for any party!
