The St Patrick’s Day celebrations may be dying down for another year, but it turns out that this year, there was a particularly remote party as part and parcel of them!
A bunch of fans of Jameson whiskey enjoyed a special trip, organised by Jameson, that saw them enjoy what was described as ‘the most remote St Patrick’s Day celebration in the world’. They were whisked off to Svalbard in Norway for the occasion. The friends, from Ireland, India and Argentina, had a bit of a trek across frozen terrain for their adventure. But it all seemed to be worth it!
Svalbard was chosen because it sits on the map at 17 degrees longitude and 80 degrees latitude. As such, those numbers come together to make 1780, the year that John Jameson originally set up his distillery home in Dublin.
As you can see from the below video, a good time was had by all…
