Prime Pubs Introduces The Céilí Cold Fashioned, an Innovative Cocktail on Tap made with Guinness Draught Stout and Bulleit Bourbon Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – New cocktail on tap celebrates the latest trends in Pub culture with a modern spin on the classic Old Fashioned

Prime Pubs is thrilled to announce the launch of its first exclusive signature cocktail on tap, the Céilí Cold Fashioned, now available at Fionn MacCool’s, Fionn’s, D’Arcy McGees, D’Arcy’s, Tir nan og, and Paddy Flaherty’s across Ontario and Manitoba. “We’re excited to be a part of Prime Pubs’ first signature cocktail on tap, bringing together two incredible brands – Guinness and Bulleit Bourbon – as part of an innovative and sustainable new menu offering for patrons,” said Mark Phillips, Director of Marketing at Diageo Canada. “Thanks to the team at Prime Pubs, The Céilí Cold Fashioned reflects a continued commitment to delivering unique and creative cocktail experiences.”

Developed with Bulleit Bourbon Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Guinness Draught Stout, the innovative cocktail on tap is a modern-day riff on the classic Old Fashioned, showcasing an array of rich and robust flavours. Not only does the blend of Guinness Draught Stout, Bulleit Bourbon Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and coffee pay homage to its Irish roots, but its name Céilí is the traditional Gaelic meaning for ‘traditional social gathering’, representing the true Pub experience.

“Our signature cocktail recipe was curated with a number of things in mind,” says Nathan Cameron Beverage Director, Recipe Unlimited. “We took the nostalgia of the Old Fashioned and paired it with Bulleit, Guinness—thought to be synonymous with Pub culture—then added a Canadian element with the addition of maple syrup. The cocktail is also nitrogenated, providing a velvety mouthfeel when it’s poured at the Pub.”
