Gillian Fitzgerald of Casements Bar in San Francisco: Lock-in Livestream

October 11, 2020


Get your whiskey bottles ready and make sure the children or pets don’t disturb you!

We’re joined on the Lock-in by Irish native Gillian Fitzgerald, co-owner of Casements Bar, a modern Irish cocktail bar in San Francisco.

Casements opened early this year and quickly made a name for itself in the city with its uniquely Irish-influenced cocktail and food menu. This isn’t your shamrock and shillelagh type of Irish bar but rather represents and showcases the incredible produce and sprits coming out of Ireland.

The lockdown has been tough for Casements Bar but Gillian and her team have come up with very novel ways to ensure thirsty customers can still get access to the gins and whiskeys and spirits they love.

We sip on three whiskeys that feature on Casements shelf: -Green Spot Chateau Montelena – Dark Silkie – Redbreast 15YO.

We also have a special musical guest so that we have some tunes to accompany the craic and the scéal.

Irish whiskeys sipped this week:

  • Green Spot Chateau Montelena
  • The Legendary Dark Silkie
  • Redbreast 15YO




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.
