Bushmills gets ready for Irish Coffee Day on January 25

Monday 25th January marks Irish Coffee Day, a celebration of the timeless and classic whiskey warmer which always goes down a treat on a cold evening.

First created in the winter of 1943 by Joe Sheridan, a barman and chef, the Irish Coffee was given as a welcoming drink to tourists arriving in Ireland from transatlantic flights.

This classic recipe from Bushmills Irish Whiskey balances sweet, malty and velvety smooth Bushmills Original with the intense flavours of the black coffee to create a deliciously rich and warming sip.

Give this recipe a try this evening and raise a glass to the year ahead…
