Cold Irishman cocktail competition

Walsh Whiskey and Emporia Brands have come together to launch the first cocktail competition using The Irishman whiskey.

Focusing on The Irishman Founder’s Reserve expression, both companies are on the lookout for the best innovative twist on their signature serve, The Cold Irishman. With the original recipe seeing a blended combination of The Irishman Founder’s Reserve, coffee, half and half and sugar syrup, the competition throws open a variety of options to impress the Walsh family of Bernard and Rosemary.

The cocktail creation must contain a minimum of 35ml of The Irishman Founder’s Reserve and have a maximum of five ingredients (exclusing garnish). Bartenders will also need to explain the inspiration behind their cocktail.

The successor of this challenge will win a trip to the new distillery, Royal Oak on Ireland’s River Barrow.

To enter, submit your details and cocktail recipe to the online registration form at emporiabrands.com/coldirishman before 12 May. Shortlisted applicants will recieve a visit to their bar, with the winner announced on the 19 May.
