Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, and Charlie Day have spent a lot of time between the four walls of the fictional Paddy’s Pub in their long-running hit show, Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It’s what inspired Four Walls, the spirits line that launched last year with a couple of limited-edition Irish whiskeys benefitting the hospitality industry. Now, the gang is back at it, this time with Four Walls Irish American Whiskey, a new expression that’s aimed at everyone.
Four Walls is a blend of triple-distilled grain and malt Irish whiskeys with American rye. The 80-proof whiskey is distilled as much for Saturday night as for Tuesday afternoon, and it’s smooth enough for shots but has enough structure to hold up in cocktails.
“After our higher-end releases, it was important for us to make a whiskey priced that all of our fans could try and that bartenders would want to use in everyday drinks,” said Charlie Day.
Just as the limited-release whiskeys donated proceeds to the bartending community, fans can shop the new Four Walls merchandise shop, where 100% of the proceeds of select items will benefit Tales of the Cocktail Foundation, a non-profit that works to educate, advance, and support the global cocktail community.
“The three of us have come up with some of our best ideas and had some of our most memorable nights out together in unassuming rooms where great bartenders made us feel like a million bucks when we probably didn’t have a hundred between us,” added Rob McElhenney. “That is the power of a great bar — when your favorite people are there, your favorite bartender is working, and a great song is playing. Nothing can beat that good time, and that’s what Four Walls is all about.”
Four Walls Irish American Whiskey is rolling out to bars this month, and it can also be purchased online.
