CELTIC ARD RÍ DÓ 8.6% RED ALE
Loitering with considerable intent at the top end of D2’s Dawson Street, the Celtic Whiskey Store has long been regarded as the go-to place in the capital for craft spirits like the remarkable small-batch Bán Barreled & Buried Poitin from the Ards peninsula, which words alone cannot describe.
Also getting a Macca-style doublethumbs up is the muscular whiskey matured ale they’ve produced in association with the 5 Lamps Brewery.
Along with a suitably big bang of whiskey, there are more subtle chocolate, malt and toffee notes, which make this a real sat in front of the fire sipper.
Available instore or online from celticwhiskeyshop.com/celtic-ard-rido at €3.99 for a 330ml bottle.
