As much as they might hate to admit it, the Scots most likely learned about distillation from the Irish. At one time, there were hundreds of whiskey distilleries in Ireland. But only four distilleries are active today. Despite that, Irish whiskey is one of the fastest growing spirits in the U.S. Jameson may be the most well known but there are plenty of other remarkable whiskies to note. Whether it’s single malt, grain, pure pot still or blended, The Hooch Life has the best bartender recommendations for Irish whiskey. If you’re looking for something divine in your Irish Coffee or something to savor served neat, look no further. Slainte!
