Sure, you’d spot them a mile away.

As you probably know, Ireland is famous for its redheads, from Angela Scanlon, to Bosco, to Domhnall Gleeson, to Paul O’Connell (before he shaved it bare) and if you’re a fan of old Hollywood, you’ll remember the legendary Maureen O’Hara.

The fiery folk make up just one per cent of the world’s population with Ireland being home to the second-largest ginger population in the world, would you believe? (Those Scots beat us to it!)

And so, because we only adore our red-headed friends here in Ireland, Fever-Tree is celebrating Gingers of Ireland on Thursday, November 5! Fever-Tree is offering a complimentary sample of Whiskey and Ginger Ale (how fitting) per person at all O’Brien’s Off-Licenses across the country, so you and all your ginger mates can experience The Ultimate Whiskey Ginger Ale!

Not only is it sure to taste devilishly good, but we think a warming delectable whiskey, especially in autumn, is just so apt and timely for a redhead celebration.

Along with Ginger Ale, Fever-Tree’s range includes a premium Ginger Beer, so you can pick your favourite to suit a range of whiskies, bourbons and rums as we opt for the darker and spicier tipples this season.

Fear not, Fever-Tree have thought of everything, and so with all of us being in lockdown, Fever-Tree invites us all to join together virtually and celebrate the Gingers of Ireland at the Fever-Tree Master Class on November 12, at 7.30pm too. Here, you’ll find out how to mix simple yet superb tasting drinks from one of the very top mixologists in Ireland and the UK, all from the comfort of home. Sounds pretty class to us.

To sign up and claim a free place, visit Eventbrite here.

So now, to get to O’Brien’s Off-License, pick up our Fever-Tree drink and celebrate our gingers as we should!

Do remember to enjoy alcohol responsibly and visit
