But now there is another contender - Lambay Malt Irish Whiskey, launched last September and is the first Irish blended single malt with a cognac cask finish in the world. Both whiskeys make excellent base whiskeys for cocktails and we are delighted to present our top 5 Summer cocktails for the season ahead. Brown spirits are not just for the winter months and the diversity of Irish whiskey presents many taste profiles and ways to mix up your favourite classic cocktail using Irish whiskey. Whether it's your classic highball or Julep, one can always be surprised by how well whiskey blends with fruit flavors, tonics, and citrus bases.
“The drinks industry trend this Summer is all about combining bold fruit flavors but in a health-conscious way, working with sugar alternatives like agave, nectars and fermented drinks like Kombucha, definitely more healthy and without the heavy alcohol taste,” says Sheehan, Lambay Whiskey's Global Brand Ambassador.
