The Best Chicago Bars for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

SHARE The Best Chicago Bars for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

From the green river to our sprawling parade and rollicking crowds, few North American cities can rival Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day. But no matter which day they dye the river, St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago is bigger than any one single day. Fortunately, Keeper’s Heart Whiskey respects and honors the season of St. Patrick’s Day, and they’ve created a cocktail series leading up to the festivities. No, they aren’t going to compete with the river-dying and parade, but they will help get you into the proper spirit.

Chicago is known for many things, but it should be wider knowledge that we’re home to some of the best bartenders in the world, and you’re going to want to try what they’re mixing up with Keeper’s Heart. Fortunately, you’ll have a few chances to taste their work in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day.

Keeper’s Heart is a remarkable new style of whiskey, blending Irish and American whiskeys in celebration of these two diverse distilling heritages. This makes it uniquely perfect for enjoying St. Patrick’s Day in America, and it also doesn’t hurt that it was created by a living Irish legend. World-Renowned Master Distiller Brian Nation, formerly of Jameson, Midleton and Redbreast, along with Liquid Collaborator David Perkins, Founder of High West Distillery, helped make Keeper’s Heart the most awarded new whiskey of 2022, and it’s unlike anything the world has ever tasted before. Cheers and Sláinte!
