Shots Box, experts in delivering curated craft, artisanal, and small-batch spirits to your doorstep, is releasing an exclusive, St. Patrick’s Day-themed whiskey box, stocked with a selection of authentic, high-quality Irish whiskeys just in time for St. Patrick’s Day 2022 on March 17. “Supposedly, more Irish whiskey is consumed on St. Patrick’s Day than any other day of the year,” said JC Stock, Chief Executive Officer of Shots Box. “We’re looking to continue that tradition by introducing people to new flavors and varieties of Irish whiskey that they can’t get from their local liquor stores and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a big way with family and friends this year.” Irish whiskey is one of the oldest spirits in the world with a long, storied heritage, and the Shots Box team is excited to share that history with everyone. The Irish Whiskey Act of 1980 defines the basic requirements for a spirit to be considered an Irish whiskey. According to Whiskey Advocate, the requirements as laid out in the legislation are as follows:
Be made from a mash of malted barley, plus other cereal grains (optional); Be mashed, fermented, distilled to no more than 94.8% alcohol by volume (ABV), and matured in wooden casks, such as oak, not exceeding 700 liters for a minimum of three years in the Republic of Ireland and/or Northern Ireland; Not contain additives other than water and caramel coloring (e150a); Retain the characteristics of its raw materials (in other words, smell and taste like whiskey); Be bottled at no less than 40% ABV.
For an even greater selection of artisanal and small-batch whiskeys, check out the Shots Box Whiskey Tasters Club where members receive five curated and unique whiskey samples every other month along with a full-size bottle of whiskey of their choice, a tasting journal with a notes section that highlights the vocabulary necessary to describe the whiskey that’s being sampled, a Shots Box pencil and exclusive Shots Box perks.
