Think about it—the only thing more Irish than potatoes is whiskey! It’s believed that Ireland is the birthplace of whiskey, so it’s become a common companion of St. Patrick’s Day. The Twin Cities’ own O’Shaughnessy Distilling created Keeper’s Heart Whiskey to accompany memories and celebrate the moments that make life special.
Created by World-Renowned Master Distiller Brian Nation along with Founder of High West Distillery and Liquid Collaborator David Perkins, Keeper’s Heart was the most awarded new whiskey of 2022, and is unmatched and unforgettable. Keeper’s Heart Irish + American Whiskey presents notes of baking spices and charred oak, while Keeper’s Heart Irish + Bourbon has notes of, you guessed it, bourbon! Along with charred oak, earthy spices, and delicate butterscotch sweetness, it’s a smooth and decadent blend.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Keeper’s Heart will play a part in festivities all over the metro area. Be sure to stop by one of these locations to taste this brand-new style of whiskey, a blend of Irish and American distilling traditions, and get a true taste of Ireland.
