Get ready for Irish Whiskey Day on Sunday 3rd March 19
International Irish Whiskey Day or Irish Whiskey Day is celebrated each year on 3/3 or 3rd March.
The 3rd March date was chosen because of the significance of the number 3 to Irish Whiskey.
- There are three styles of Irish Whiskey, Single Grain, Single Malt and Single Pot Still.
- Irish Whiskey must be matured for three years before in may be called whiskey.
- There is a tradition of Irish Whiskey being Triple Distilled.
The whole idea of Irish Whiskey day is to coordinate a global Irish Whiskey Tasting on Social Media using the Hash Tag #IrishWhiskeyDay.
Irish Whiskey Day on 3rd March, is exactly two weeks to the day before St Patrick’s day, so these global Irish Whiskey Tastings are also an ideal opportunity for the Irish Diaspora around the world to hone their Irish Whiskey Tasting Skills and Knowledge in advance of the international St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17 March.
Incidentally, the symbol of Ireland and St Patrick’s Day is the Three Leaf Shamrock .Note the importance of Three!
