St. Patrick’s Day
What I love about Saint Patrick’s Day is that everyone is Irish on March 17th.
St. Patrick's Day - celebrating Ireland
No matter where you are in the world, people feel like a part of our small nation for that brief period of time. Ireland is known as the land of a Thousand Welcomes and by embracing this, we allow for everyone to feel like they are a part of our small Emerald Isle in the Atlantic Ocean.
A country our size has no right to be celebrated the world over, yet rivers are dyed green and iconic monuments around the world go green in celebration of what should just be a normal day to them. With less than 5 million people in our population, we are the only country in the world that has a globally celebrated day and I think that’s what makes 17th March so special.
Irish mentality - all about being merry
Despite having a dark and hard history, we never let anything get us down and as a result, Irish people have shaped the world in more ways than people realize. From launching the world’s first submarine, to creating the Trans-Atlantic phone line cable, to the invention of whiskey (don’t tell the Scottish!), we haven’t done too badly. With over 70 million people who claim to have Irish heritage, it’s no wonder we have played so many roles in shaping the world and that so many feel connected to our great, yet humble, island.
Being Irish is about having the craic (Gaelic for fun), welcoming others in and above all; fearing a bit less and living a bit more. After all that’s what John Jameson lived by and we invite you to do the same with us this Saint Patrick’s Day.

Recept - Dryck
John Jameson grundade sitt Bow Street Distillery i Dublin år 1780 med ambitionen att frambringa världens bästa whiskey. John Jameson’s spirit of excellence lever kvar än idag och förklarar varför Jameson är världens mest sålda irländska whiskey. Jamesons whiskey är en medelfyllig, mjuk, smakrik och fruktig whiskey med viss sötma. Exceptionellt mjuk med lång, sammansatt eftersmak med inslag av frukt och choklad. Här finner du det klassiska receptet på den populära irländska drinken Irish Coffee!Läs mer
