Get Ready for Irish Whiskey Day on Tuesday 3 March #IrishWhiskeyDay

Get ready for International Irish Whiskey Day on Tuesday 3rd March 2020

Irish Whiskey Day 3 March. Irish Whiskey TrailInternational Irish Whiskey Day or Irish Whiskey Day is celebrated each year on 3/3 or 3rd March.

The 3rd March date was chosen because of the significance of the number 3 in Irish Whiskey and in Ireland.

  • There are three styles of Irish Whiskey, Single Grain, Single Malt and Single Pot Still.
  • Irish Whiskey must be matured for three years before it may be called whiskey.
  • There is a tradition of Irish Whiskey being Triple Distilled.

The whole idea of Irish Whiskey day is to coordinate a global Irish Whiskey Tasting on Social Media using the Hash Tag #IrishWhiskeyDay.

Irish Whiskey Day on 3rd March is exactly two weeks to the day before St Patrick’s day, so these global Irish Whiskey Day Tasting events are an ideal opportunity for the Irish Diaspora around the world to hone their Irish Whiskey Tasting Skills and Knowledge in advance of the international St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17 March.
