Irish Mule with American Woman Whiskey

The Irish Mule, a standout variation of the classic Mule cocktail, is elevated to new heights with the bold and flavorful American Woman 92 Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

The Mule cocktail is an all-time favorite that has been loved for its unique ginger beer kick and copper mug presentation since its inception in the mid-20th century. The Irish Mule, which replaces vodka with whiskey, stands out among its various iterations. 

When it comes to creating a bold and flavorful twist on the traditional Irish Mule, American Woman 92 Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the perfect choice. Its rich corn mash bill and aging in 100-year-old forest oak barrels give it a distinctive taste. The smaller 30-gallon barrels used for aging at high altitude ensure a deep, consistent flavor, making American Woman the ideal whiskey for a refreshing yet robust whiskey-based Mule.
