The Three Drinkers are back, and this time they’re in Ireland, travelling the length and breadth of the Emerald Isle in search of the finest distilleries and drinks the island has to offer.
The Three Drinkers are drinks experts, writers and broadcasters Helena Nicklin and Aidy Smith. Joined by a different ‘third drinker’ in the six episodes, the Amazon Prime show promises armchair travel and feel-good entertainment.
Following on from their first series, The Three Drinkers Do Scotch Whisky, the Three Drinkers have taken to the road in Ireland. While their first series focused on whisky, their time in Ireland is more varied and sees them visiting distilleries, cider orchards and country pubs to learn about everything from whiskey, gin, vodka and poitin to beer, Irish cream and even Irish wine.
Arriving with the keys to The Devil’s Keep, they spent time with The Craft Irish Whiskey Co., pouring over the finer details of our experiential whiskeys and admiring the attention to detail that epitomises our whiskeys and their surrounds. They were lucky enough to taste the whiskey, and to discover how the experience is perfected with the expertly designed pipette, obsidian whiskey stones and Irish spring water.
Jay Bradley, Founder of The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. even set the Three Drinkers a challenge. Sending them a bottle of our latest, yet to be revealed, release, he tasked them with creating a luxury Irish whiskey cocktail. While some would argue that mixing a whiskey of such complexity, depth and viscosity into a cocktail is a crime, Aidy argues that it’s all about finding the perfect balance to let the whiskey shine through.
With a focus on diversity and better inclusivity within the drinks industry, the series showcases a more inclusive world and we’re proud to be a part of it.
