I’m Kilbeggan you to celebrate Halfway Day with me

By / 09.17.12

Frat boys nationwide have been using halfway to St. Patrick’s day as an unnecessary excuse to get drunk for years, but Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey has finally made “Halfway Day” official. Get out there and celebrate with a nice tall glass of whiskey.

If you aren’t familiar with Kilbeggan, it’s because we’re American, and it only recently became available nationwide here. The distillery has actually been around for more than 250 years. The timing of the U.S. expansion couldn’t be better with Irish whiskey being the fastest growing spirits category last year. I’m a sucker for nostalgia, so the fact that they still use a 180-year old pot still to make all their whiskey really touches me deep. No, I won’t be making a Sandusky joke, even though we like to have fun here.

I’ve been catching some flack for talking mostly about expensive booze, so here’s your chance to pick up a bottle on the cheap. Suggested retail is only $24!
