You’re one of us now.
This is a thrill that lasts and lasts. Every part of your mouth is smiling. This is good, it is saying. This is very good.
Let it linger
Now that first encounter turns into attitude – this is a punchy, heavy-hitter. While the bourbon and vanilla are working you over in a one-two, the spice notes are running riot. This is classic Irish with a definite edge.
Take a sip
Inhale slowly. First, bourbon comes out swinging, followed by vanilla – all sweetness and light. Then the rest of the gang pile in: spice, fruit, malt. Now you know what you’re up against.
It all makes scents
Think honey – thick, rich, liquid gold. It’s a good start.
At first sight
The shelves are the story of Irish whiskey. And the menus are sought-after, talked-about and award-winning documents. This is what makes the Dead Rabbit unique and why it’s won best bar in the world. Twice.
The Dead Rabbit whiskey reflects this that in the care and craft that goes into every drop. Working hand in hand with Darryl Mc Nally, leading Irish whiskey distiller, The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey was conceived - inspired by the gangs and the bar before it.
