Tullamore D.E.W. – Parting Glass Short [Video]

Tullamore D.E.W. is a triple distilled Irish whiskey that is a blend of three types of Irish whiskey – pot still, malt, and grain. D.E.W. stands for Daniel E. Williams, who started shovelling malted barley and sleeping in the hayloft. Eventually, he would become General Manager and ultimately owner of the distillery – which is why his initials are on each bottle.

I don’t know much about Irish whiskey, certainly not as much about Scotch, but this two and a half minute video did romanticize it for me and I’ll have to seek it out on my next trip to the store.

Beautiful video and great sentiment.

    The quote at the beginning of the Tullamore Dew video is from a James Joyce short story, “The Dead”: “Better to pass boldly in the full glory of some passion than to fade and wither dismally with age.” I’ve known that quote for many years. Refreshing and surprising to hear it spoken (although somewhat not accurately). BTW, I hope that I’ve quoted it accurately, at least it’s the way I recall it.
