Driving back down from the ferry terminal at Larne after my latest trip to Scotland, a meal break was in order.
Using the old Portadown, Monaghan, Cavan N55 route found us entering the Greville Arms Hotel in Granard for an early evening feed.
I was hoping they might have an old Michael Collins whiskey to sample given the Kitty Kiernan link. No such luck on that front.
They did have a bottle of the original 8 Year Old Pure Malt Sheep Dip blended malt however!
This is a soft, sweet, smooth & gently malty approachable blended malt that has proved popular over the years. It’s had as many owners as changes in labels during that time. This is an early incarnation with the MJ Dowdeswell & Co label before Spencerfield Spirit took it over then latterly Ian Macleod Distillers.
A lovely accompaniment to my fish and chips.
