A Night of Irish Coffees, Craic and Whiskey: Lock-in Livestream

January 31, 2021

On this week’s Lock-in we went all in on the Irish coffee, continuing our celebration of Ireland’s most famous cocktail, as International Irish Coffee Day was earlier this week.
This was a full night of Irish coffee demonstrations, stories and craic.

I was joined by a host of special guests for the night. Donna Stewart, Irish whiskey ambassador, returned to co-host this week’s Lock-in and help steer the ship on a busy night, and she introduced us to her favorite Irish Coffee recipe!

Buena Vista Café General Manager Kevin Jones and Bartender John Jeide joined us from San Francisco and shared the stories and statistics behind the bar that sells more Irish coffees than anywhere else on Earth, and buys more Tullamore D.E.W. than any other single account globally.

John made an Irish Coffee, the Buena Vista Cafe way, live on air too!

Gillian NicGearailt joined us from Casements Bar in San Francisco and made an Irish Coffee with a twist and we welcomed a special musical guest to play a tune for us too!

We used Tullamore D.E.W, Powers Three Swallow and Teeling Small Batch in our Irish coffees this week. 

Grab your whiskeys and if you like, all the ingredients you need to make an Irish coffee along with us, and join in our celebration of the cocktail that has introduced so many people to Irish whiskey!


Irish whiskeys sipped this week:

  • Tullamore D.E.W.
  • Powers Three Swallow
  • Teeling Small Batch



Join Barry Chandler, founder and host of Stories & Sips every Friday live on Facebook and YouTube at 7pm EST/4pm PST.

Each week Barry opens up a few different Irish whiskeys and invites a guest or two to join for conversation and craic.

The Lock-in Livestream is a great chance to raise a glass to our health, one another and another week under our belt.

Irish whiskey brings people together. Each Friday 1000s of Irish whiskey fans come together in one place – the Lock-in Livestream. Mark your calendar for this weekly celebration of all things Irish whiskey.
