The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes Have Landed in SF

Irish whiskey is the fastest growing kind of whiskey and The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes offers the kind of versatility that is exciting bartenders throughout our city. In fact, this stuff's so tasty, it's been awarded three 'Best Irish Whiskey' accolades in little more than two years. It is the only Super Premium Collection of Irish Whiskeys and has four variants: The Single Malt, Limited Edition, Rare Irish and Classic Blend. Now this brand is available in San Francisco and recently ran a successful in-store promotion with The Whisky Shop. Enjoy The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes at The House of Shields, Fly Bar and The Broken Record.

It is no stranger to industry acclaim. In March 2012, The Single Malt received a score of 93 from industry professional Anthony Dias Blue (Co-owner of The Tasting Panel Magazine). In addition, The Single Malt was selected as one of Ireland's Reserve Cuvées, a signature product of outstanding quality, this February in Ireland's weekly Business Post.

But The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes also has an emotional pull, which is resonating throughout the country. It commemorates the story of The Wild Geese: Brave men and women who left Ireland in the last 400 years. Many of these people have traveled to the United States, and their descendants include George Clooney, quarterback Tom Brady and Barack Obama.

This story starts with Patrick Sarsfield in 1691: After their defeat at The Battle Of The Boyne, Patrick Sarsfield and his followers left Ireland. In the hope and belief that they would one day return, they took the name The Wild Geese; birds that always return to their homeland. The parting, however, proved permanent.

Recently, The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes spent St. Patrick's Day in San Antonio, as sponsors of the city's parade and met members of the local Irish community. It's astonishing to think that an Irish community is thriving over 4000 miles from Ireland, and the brand has produced a video which details the expanding reach of it's emotional connection:

San Antonio epitomizes a modern day chapter of The Wild Geese story and illustrates the fact that The Wild Geese Irish Soldiers & Heroes and the experience of Irish people are one and the same.
