Allan S. Goodman Welcomes Bushmills Prohibition Recipe

By June 25, 2022Connecticut, Top News

Representatives from Allan S. Goodman welcomed a new spirits addition, Bushmills Prohibition Recipe Irish Whiskey, with a gathering at The Lansdowne Irish Pub & Music House at Mohegan Sun in May. Guests dressed to reflect the era of the limited-edition whiskey, themed after the popular Netflix show “Peaky Blinders.” The series title takes its name from a real-life historical English street gang, with whiskey playing a featured role throughout. Prohibition Recipe and its blend is “by order of the Shelby Company Ltd.” and its label features a quote from integral character Tommy Shelby, played by actor Cillian Murphy: “Whiskey’s good proofing water. Tells you who’s real and who isn’t.” The whiskey was overseen by Master Distiller Colum Egan, creating a deep amber color with a dense bouquet of barley, fresh oats, honeycomb, dried fruits and baking spices. The palate is “big and bold,” with flavors of rye bread, orange marmalade, almonds and cinnamon, finishing long and full with zesty citrus oils and vanilla bean. At 46% ABV/92 proof, the blend is 45% single malt and 55% proprietary grain whiskey of 3-, 4- and 5-Year-Old whiskeys, non-chill filtered and bourbon barrel aged. A showcased cocktail, the Shelby Sour, was part of the national launch campaign.
