Step this way for great festive drink ideas including a couple of extremely cheeky cocktails!
There’s a story behind the taste of Lambay Irish Whiskey. Lambay Island is just three miles off the coast of Dublin, Ireland. This small and historically strategic island is a story in itself, with many intriguing tales of dynasty and allegiances to explore. Most importantly, it is the home of a fine Irish whiskey that is inspired by the natural beauty of this fascinating place.
Launched in 2018, Lambay Whiskey is an independent whiskey company that blends and bottles its own unique whiskey.
Lambay Irish Whiskey takes the blending and expertise deployed in making great Cognac, and combines that with centuries-old Irish distilling knowledge. The result is Lambay Whiskey: a unique craft Irish whiskey from a very special place, with a marvellous, distinctive taste.
As winter approaches we return indoors and seek comfort in delicious seasonal drinks, and the folks at Lambay Whiskey have shared this easy-to-make at home hot drink infusion.
Whether you make up a large batch for family gatherings or simply a warming punch at the end of a long cold day, Lambay Small Batch Blend makes the perfect hot punch to warm the cockles of your heart throughout the festive season.
