The Montserrat

Though not alike in climate, Ireland and Montserrat share a little more than ancestry. During the 18th century, slaves were sent from Ireland to Montserrat. On March 17th, 1768, these Irish-African slaves stood together in an uprising against their colonial masters. The revolt failed, but since that day, St Patrick's day has been a public holiday on the island. The Montserrat is our nod to these Irish cousins overseas.

The serve

This original Tullamore D.E.W. drink is part of the Old Fashioned family of cocktails. The natural spice notes in our whiskey work wonders with the addition of the bitters and apple juice. So every time you enjoy the spicy yet fruity simplicity of a Tullamore D.E.W. Montserrat, raise a glass to our Irish brothers in Montserrat and beyond.

Method

  • Muddle 1 brown sugar cube, a dash of bitters and a small amount of Tullamore D.E.W. in the bottom of a rocks glass. 
  • Fill glass with cubed ice and stir to dilute, adding 50ml Tullamore D.E.W. slowly. 
  • Add more ice as necessary, then add 25ml cloudy apple juice
  • Garnish with an orange twist.
