Happy St Patrick’s Day from everyone at Tullamore D.E.W. When the celebrations can’t be big – let’s all celebrate small!
St Patrick’s Day is an iconic moment of Irish celebration when we turn the world green for the day. Just because we can’t celebrate in person doesn’t mean we can’t still share the craic together! So we’re inviting everyone to step inside our pub, raise a glass and join together virtually, as we bring to life a blend of Irish pub culture from music, comedy and St Patrick’s Day toasts.
And don’t forget to buy a bottle and share a Tully!
For St. Patrick’s Day, our friends at Shoreditch bar Happiness Forgets have created the Micky Rivers, a Tully Twist on a Stone Fence cocktail. Not in the mood to make it yourself? Order a Micky Rivers straight to your home.
For a drink as green as the Emerald Isle itself, look no further than the Emerald Sour. A herbal, sour apple twist on the classic whiskey sour.
- 40ml Tullamore D.E.W. Original Irish Whiskey
- 25ml Manzana Verde Liqueur
- 30ml lime juice
- 15ml green Chartreuse

- 30ml egg whites
- Quality fresh cubed ice
Pour Tullamore D.E.W. Original Irish Whiskey, Manzana Verde, limejuice, green Chartreuse, mint syrup and egg whites into a shaker.

Ms. Better’s Bitters Miraculous Foamer is a great vegan-friendly alternative to egg whites.

St. Patrick's Day is an iconic day of national Irish celebration worldwide, with more than 50 national monuments turning green, including, The London Eye and The Empire State Building. Not only this, the city of Chicago even turns their river green! However, did you know the origins of St. Patrick’s Day are a little different to what we now know, so let’s bust a few myths while we are here, so sit back, sip a whiskey and read away.
• Although St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland, he is in fact originally from what is now modern-day Wales.
• The original colour was believed to be Blue, which would have been associated with Irish who had joined Police forces and had asked permission to walk in honour of St. Patrick in the form of a parade. The first parade was held in Boston in 1737.
• Ireland never had snakes which St. Patrick gets credit for. However, the real meaning here is that the symbol of Paganism was a snake, so he rid Ireland of snakes in how he brought religion to Ireland. If we are to follow the original narrative, let it be known that Tullamore D.E.W. got rid of the dinosaurs, penguins and koalas.
So, there you have it. St Patrick’s Day is a big wonderful green lie, but it won’t stop us finding an excuse to celebrate our Irish-ness and the incredible closeness we have with our nearest neighbours.
Here’s to the women
Here’s to women of the Irish shore; I love but one, I love not more. But since she’s not here to drink her part, I’ll drink her share with all my heart.
Glasses up never down
Glasses up never down, always smile, forget to frown. It has been in a cask for many a year with the hope to give a great many a cheer. So I will leave you with this and bid you adieu, Happy St. Patricks Day from Tullamore D.E.W.
