For those who prefer to celebrate at home with a St. Patrick’s Day party for friends or family might try one of these Luck of the Irish whiskeys. Natterjack is an exceptional triple-distilled Irish Whiskey with mash bill of 20% malted barley and 80% corn. It’s blended in the barrel and aged in former bourbon barrels before finishing in Virgin American Oak. The golden liquid features a blend of vanilla, sweet creamed corn, cinnamon and a note of malt to offer a smooth, almost creamy palate of orange zest, all-spice and notes of cedar and tobacco. Gortinore Distillery & Co. introduced Natterjack Irish Whiskey as an “Irish Toad with an American Accent.”
