Tullamore D.E.W., the world’s second largest Irish whiskey brand, has been long associated with the traditional Irish Coffee. To celebrate National Irish Coffee Day this January 25th, Tullamore D.E.W. is giving this timeless coffee cocktail a bit of extra special attention by jazzing up the recipe. The brand has updated the classic recipe with some new ingredients designed to appeal to more modern tastes.
Tullamore D.E.W. is encouraging the beauty of blend with one of Ireland’s most beloved tipples – which took off globally in 1943 after bartender Jim Sheridan served the drink to passengers arriving at Shannon Airport on transatlantic flights. Today, Irish Coffee is enjoyed all year round and has become a signature drink across the globe. To mark the occasion, Tullamore D.E.W. Global Brand Ambassador Kevin Pigott has created a new way to enjoy a classic Irish staple while keeping Jim Sheridan’s original recipe – and premium Irish whiskey – at the forefront. With the chilly weather this winter, the recipe is the perfect accompaniment to a cosy night in.
Kevin Pigott, Global Brand Ambassador said:
“Irish coffee is the caffeine cousin Guinness never had, a symbol of Ireland with everything you could ever want – caffeine, whiskey, sugar and cream. At Tullamore D.E.W., we pride ourselves on always innovating – while respecting the past and celebrating those before us. Our new version is a nod to the iconic drink made by Jim, with a modern twist. We’re looking forward to people enjoying this classic with a twist to celebrate Irish Coffee Day”
