HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY DUPPIES!
It’s Paddy’s Day Duppies, and you know what that means – time to get out and enjoy a Guinness!
For most people, Guinness conjures up notions of Ireland, the home of the Aviva stadium and general home of stout drinker - indeed, Guinness was originally (and still is) brewed in Dublin!
But there’s a whole other facet to the world-famous stout that remains completely foreign to a lot of Guinness drinkers – namely it’s international heritage. That’s right – although it’s true home lies on the Irish coast, Guinness is actually brewed all over the world, most famously in Nigeria.
Guinness has therefore well and truly found itself a home all around the world – and with Diageo’s purchase of the famous Jamaican beer Red Stripe, it has since nestled in to (and thrived in) Jamaica!
There’s even a rumour flying around the Jamaican Guinness is actually stronger than Irish Guinness – don’t let yourself be fooled though, this is simply Guinness’ Foreign Extra Stout, which sits at 6.5% and makes up about 45% of the global Guinness market.
Since being in the Caribbean, Guinness has been very well adopted by the local community, which has seen the rise of Guinness-based rum cocktails!
So if you’re feeling a little bit tropical this Paddy’s Day, why not whip up a Shady Leprechaun? Recipe below ;)
1 Pint Guinness

Enjoy Duppies – and Happy St Patrick’s Day!
