An Irish Moondance


Bushmills Irish Whiskey and Van Morrison Moondance
Northern Ireland Mystic Tidings

The distant homeland comes calling in this vinyl pairing made in Irish Heaven. All of the whiskey bottled under the Bushmills whiskey brand is produced at the Bushmills Distillery. A license to distill in the area was granted to Sir Thomas Phillipps in 1608 by King James 1. They are obviously doing something incredibly right to still be around all these hundreds of years later.

I can only imagine the sweet sounds of this Van Morrison album may just as well transcend the ages just as easily. For now I’ll leave you with a traditional Irish toast:

Here’s a toast to the roast that good fellowship lends,
With the sparkle of beer and wine;
May its sentiment always be deeper, my friends,
Than the foam at the top of the stein.


Boru Break


An Irish Crafted Boru Vodka and the Irish Crafted “Jailbreak” by Thin Lizzy

The Boru vodka is a mid shelf Vodka “Inspired by Ireland’s visionary High King Brian Boru” as the bottle states. It’s a decent enough Vodka with just a bit of bottom shelf gruff on it, so the Martini might not be the best option for this particular bottle but with such a cocktail one certainly gets the full picture of the Vodka.

1976 was quite a year for Rock n Roll and this album is one of many true staples that were created that year. A vinyl that I would venture so far as to say, a must have for any record collector.
