We celebrate the International Irish Whiskey Day on March 3rd. I imagen you ask why 3rd of March? The number 3 is very important for Irish whiskey. The first 3 have to do with distilling. In Ireland, the typical distilling the whiskey 3 times. This makes the whiskey more smooth and mellow. The Irish say they do this to be sure, to be sure and to be sure. The second 3 have to do with maturation. The Irish whiskey needs to be producing, maturate in Ireland, for minimum 3 years and 1 day to be cold Irish whiskey. The third 3 is linked to the three styles of Irish Whiskey, Single Grain, Single Malt and Single Pot Still.
