HAD 122: Irish Whiskey
Ireland is the birthplace of whiskey. There I said it, I have research to back me up, so come at me! Okay, fine. There is some debate, but most records show it was in Ireland first, and since it’s almost St Patrick’s Day, what better time to talk about Irish Whiskey. Unfortunately, it’s too much for one episode so let’s get the History out of the way so Bob will shut up and we can all Have a Drink.
