Your St. Patrick’s Day Survival Guide

If you’ve ever been in the East Village on St. Patrick’s Day, you’ve seen the hordes of sweaty, screaming revelers, cramming the bars to overflowing. There’s no need to put yourself in the middle of all that. Take home a bottle of the super-smooth Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey and enjoy a wee taste of the holiday with some friends.

This holiday only comes around once a year, after all. Coole Swan is a great-tasting cream liqueur from Ireland; give it a try this St. Patrick’s Day!

This is a special occasion, so you should have something special in your glass. Leave the plastic-handled jugs of whiskey behind and celebrate with premium Irish whiskeys from the Cooley distillery. We’ll be tasting (not slamming) a blended whiskey, a single malt, and a rare Irish peated single malt. Stop by 3-5pm on Saturday for a taste.

Your Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Food Pairing:

It has become a bit of a St. Patrick’s Day tradition for the Astor team to indulge in Store Manager Bill Kenny’s famous homemade Irish Soda Bread. This year, we thought we would ask Bill to share his secrets with us so that you too can enjoy this renowned food-coma-inducing holiday treat. Bill’s tip for the perfect loaf of bread? “While baking, it helps to play music from bands like Solas or Altan to get you into the holiday spirit”.
