Much of this incredible viral success on social media was due to support from major Irish related social media accounts such as Tourism Ireland, the National Irish Tourist Board and major Irish Whiskey Industry players such as Pernod Ricard.

An unsolicited article about Irish Whiskey Day on the major Irish Media Channel The Irish Post, based in the UK, was shared nearly 100,000 times on Social Media. This article which came as a very unexpected surprise managed to summarise what #IrishWhiskeyDay is all about far better than we could. The idea behind Irish Whiskey Day was to celebrate the significance of the number 3 in Irish Whiskey.

  • There are three types of Irish Whiskey, Single Grain, Single Malt and of course the uniquely Irish Single Pot Still.
  • Often Irish Whiskey is Triple Distilled.
  • Irish Whiskey must spend 3 years in the cask before it is legally Irish Whiskey.

An added bonus is that 3rd March or 3/3 is exactly two weeks to the day before St Patrick’s Day, so Irish Whiskey Day is an ideal opportunity to educate fans of all things Irish about the wonders of Irish Whiskey in time to share their new found knowledge and appreciation with their friends and colleagues on 17 March.

One of the fun things that we noticed last year is the #IrishWhiskeyDay is actually some 47 hours long. The day officially begins in New Zealand at 11 am on 2nd March Dublin time and concludes 47 hours later as the Irish Whiskey sun sinks beneath the Pacific at midnight in Honolulu or 10 am Irish time!!

Our very first social media post last year was courtesy of Tourism Ireland in New Zealand and our last post to close #IrishWhiskeyDay 2020 was from an Irish Whiskey Fan in Honolulu 47 hours after the day began in New Zealand.
