The Dubliner Irish Whiskey & Liqueur Giveaway & Cocktails for St Patrick's Day

The Dubliner Irish Whiskey and The Dubliner Irish Whiskey & Honeycomb were launched at the end of last year to great acclaim. Perfect at any time of the year they'd be sure to be a hit for St Patrick's Day on March 17th which will be celebrated by the Irish and the Irish at heart across the world. What began as a religious feast day for Ireland's patron saint has now evolved into an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, food, drink and a whole lot of green. Both The Dubliner Irish Whiskey and The Dubliner Irish Whiskey & Honeycomb Liqueur can be drunk on the rocks or as part of a delicious cocktail. I'm not a huge fan of Whiskey but am totally sold on the concept of liquid crunchie! Read on for a couple of cocktail recipes and your chance to win a bottle of each.


The Dubliner Irish Whiskey is a blend of single malt and grain whiskies, aged in the finest Bourbon oak casks which are individually selected for blending, giving a warm and smooth whiskey with a lasting finish.
Available from 31Dover.com and Wine Rack. Price from £22.50.

The Dubliner Irish Whiskey & Honeycomb Liqueur is a smooth blend of honeycomb, caramel and triple distilled Irish Whiskey crafted in Ireland and tastes like “Liquid Crunchie”.
Available from 31Dover.com and Wine Rack. Price from £22.50.

25ml Cloudy Apple Juice
12.5ml Sugar Syrup ( or dissolve a teaspoon of castor sugar in the whiskey)
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

The Dubliner Honeycomb Bees Knees
50ml The Dubliner Irish Whiskey & Honeycomb Liqueur
