Terrific dads deserve terrific tipples! And at the Irish Drink Shop we’re all about sourcing those perfect gifts for the special days of the year. Some of us might not have been able to say “Cheers, Dad” for quite some time due to the ongoing pandemic. So, whether you’ll be saying cheers over a shared bottle or from afar, we’ve put together a few recommendations for the day to treat Dad (or yourself) to for the big day.
A blend of rum and spices created at the Rum & Crab Shack in St. Ives, Cornwall. Inspired by local flavours such as Saffron cake, spiced fruit, and the Shack's own Pedro Ximinez ice cream. Exceptionally smooth on the palate, with notes of saffron cake, sweet sherry ice cream, caramel with vanilla and cinnamon, nutmeg and orange Enjoy it mixed or neat. Gold medal winner at the Rum and Cachaca awards 2020. What’s more is that for a limited time, you’ll get a free Dead Man’s Fingers cap with each purchase while stocks last!
ABV: 37.5% | €35.00
A delightfully smooth and alluring limited edition lunar-inspired gin. Rich with florals and botanicals that flourish under the moonlight, offering a delicate balance of warm baked spices, and finished with a crisp burst of citrus. Best enjoyed as a Cosmic Cooler Cocktail: 2 parts Hendrick’s Lunar, 3/4 part lime juice, 1/2 part simple syrup, and 3 parts Club Soda.
ABV: 43.4% | €48.50
Predominantly aged in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks, this non-age statement from Kilchoman is one of our favourites in the range. Heavily peated with a rich mouthfeel followed by notes of dried fruits and Christmas spice. Often Sherry casks can mask a lot of the smoke, but not in this case — we highly recommend!
ABV: 46% | €64.00
Teeling Small Batch is a highly celebrated release comprised of a blend of Irish grain and malt whiskeys which have been married together in rum casks. Deliciously fruity with exotic notes, woody undertones, and a solid rum influence from the ageing process. Works wonderfully in an Irish coffee!
ABV: 46% | €38.99
An all-time favourite from the team here! Redbreast was a brand name for Jameson's pure Irish pot still, bottled in bond by Gilbeys. First made in 1939 with Jameson filling Gilbey's own casks. Two sherry casks were used for each bourbon cask. The brand died off with the closure of Jamesons distillery but was recently relaunched and is a huge favourite with both whiskey drinkers and connoisseurs.

ABV: 40% | €60.00
A top-of-the-range vermouth that uses only the very best ingredients. This variant of Cocchi is used in many of the world's top cocktail bars and makes a very fine Manhattan or Negroni.

We also are offering a free 200ml Thomas Henry Tonic for a limited time for each purchase while stocks last!

A wickedly good collaboration between Lough Ree Distillery and St Mels. The Single Malt used was aged for 6 + years in first fill Bourbon Cask and then finished for several months in a Red Wine cask that last contained St Mel’s Brown Ale. The chocolate, caramel, and malt flavours in St Mel’s Brown Ale really compliment the triple distilled malt, making for a sweet and very moreish whiskey. Exceptionally smooth overall with long-lingering malt notes and sweet oak spice.
ABV: 43% | €60.00
