The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, Paddy’s Irish Whiskey and Midleton Very Rare Barry Crockett Legacy: Lock-in Livestream

June 30, 2020


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.


The Dead Rabbit in New York is the four-time recipient of Best Bar in North America and the 2016 World’s Best Bar. The team behind this iconic bar, opened in 2013, have not only built one of the most awarded bars in the world, they’ve launched their own whiskey, written multiple books and have no plans on slowing down.

I’m be joined by co-owner of The Dead Rabbit, Belfast man Jack McGarry, who I ask about what he believes is behind their growth and success, their iconic Irish whiskey list and whiskey cocktails and we talk about their future growth plans.

The Chawke Pub Group with locations in Dublin and Limerick in Ireland recently celebrated 60 years of business – an incredible achievement in a competitive environment. They have an almost maniacal focus on process, service and hospitality which has contributed to such longevity. I’m joined by Mark McLaughlin, Group Development Manager who shares their approach to Irish whiskey education and service.

My three drinks this week will be The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, Paddy’s Irish Whiskey and Midleton Very Rare Barry Crockett Legacy.
