St Patrick’s Day 2013
It’s St Patrick’s Day! A day to celebrate all that’s great about Ireland, its history, culture and, of course, its long history of brewing and distilling. From Guinness, probably the best known and most loved stout on the planet (actually, the universe, pending any major discoveries), to smooth triple-distilled Irish whiskey, including our drink of the month, Jameson Irish Whiskey. In honour of this auspicious day, here’s our favourite facts about St Patrick’s Day and all that surrounds it:
1: St Patrick was born somewhere in mainland Britain (some argue for Dumbarton), but as a young man he was captured in a pirate raid and sold as a slave in Ireland.
2: Legend has it that St Patrick banished snakes from Ireland – while the veracity of this is uncertain, it’s still the case that no snakes have been native to the island since the last ice age.
3: The title “Saint” is partly honorary – the Catholic Church had no formal canonization process for hundreds of years after St Patrick’s death, and he has never been officially declared a saint.
4: Irish whiskey is produced in a very similar way to Scots whisky, the main difference being that Irish whiskey is usually distilled three times as opposed to one or two times in Scotland. If you want to sound like an expert, just mutter something about “the smooth, delicate flavour imparted by the final run through the spirit still” as you sip your Jameson.
5: The shamrock was only adopted as a symbol of Ireland as recently as the 18th century. All Aer Lingus flights use “shamrock” as part of their air-traffic-control callsign.
