Irish Wolfhound

written by Leroy Buliro 20th October 2017

In Ireland they like to say that this cocktail is “Named after one Irish legend and made with another”. The Irish Wolfhound (the dog) is a staple in Irish history and has become very popular globally in association with Ireland. The native breed was on its road to extinction after it had killed off most of the wolves in the country and it wasn’t until 1863 when one Captain George Graham took it upon himself to restore Ireland’s precious canine breed. Captain Graham’s was so successful that the wolfhound became adopted as a symbol for many of the country’s whiskeys.
