The Wild Geese Tasting Notes with H. Joseph Ehrmann (Bar Manager at Elixir, San Francisco)

We were the proud sponsors of the 10th Annual St Patrick’s Day Party at Elixir in San Francisco. Elixir is regarded as one of the best saloon bars in the world. It’s steeped in history and great place to hang out with experienced bar tenders who know a great drink when they see one.

Elixir’s bar manager, H. Joseph Ehrmann talks us through our Collection of Irish Whiskeys as we share with you highlights from this fantastic weekend!

‘It’s nice to have a range of expressions in an Irish whiskey. I really enjoy the Single Malt in particular. The Classic Blend I’ve made in a lot of different cocktails, it mixes really well and holds up as a nice hot whiskey. All in all I would say that I’m really impressed with the line’

The Wild Geese Start It Up At Bill Wyman – Reworked

Bill Wyman is a man of many talents. He played bass guitar for the seminal rock n’ roll band The Rolling Stones from 1962 – 1993; he’s written seven books; is an amateur archaeologist and designed a patented metal detector.

Recently another of his talents has been brought to the forefront in London: photography. Wyman’s love of art led him towards a proficiency for photography and his photographs have documented a life well lived. Many have hung in galleries al over the world, which offer an intimate look at his friends, passions and adventures.

A new exhibition in London sees a selection of artists come together and re-imagine some of his most interesting photographs. Bill Wyman – Reworked opened on the 26th February to a bustling crowd of 500 guest. We were there to provide a selection of cocktails for the guests to enjoy while viewing the artwork. The Untamed nature of The Wild Geese blended perfectly with the stunning art on display.
