Two delicious whiskey cocktails to try

The recipes come from new Irish whiskey Sailor’s Home.


If you're looking for something different to try for your next cocktail hour, these classic drinks made with a new Irish whiskey brand could be just the thing. 

Launched at the end of 2020, Sailor’s Home was inspired by Ireland’s Atlantic coast and the original sailors’ home in Limerick, which was built with the intention of giving shelter to travelling seafarers.

Crafted by renowned whiskey expert Dr. Jack Ó’Sé, there are three expressions; The Journey (€45), The Horizon (€65) and The Haven (€58) and Sailor’s Home has given us two classic cocktail recipes created around the whiskeys. Give them a go.
