Stage Left Steak Launches The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey

Stage Left Steak in New Brunswick is home to the state’s launch of The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, and #HipNJ has the celebration details!

World-renowned Irish Whiskey Master Distiller Darryl McNally, of The Dublin Liberties Distillery, teamed up with Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry, fellow Irishmen and co-founders of multi-award-winning bar, The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, to create The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey.

Drawing its inspiration from the notorious Irish street gang, active in New York City in the mid- to late-1800s, The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey made its global debut in New York City in February 2018. Only 1,200 cases have been made available, distributed exclusively in NY and now NJ.

Stage Left Steak co-owner Francis Schott has deep roots in New Jersey’s Irish-American community and is celebrating the launch in a big way. Check out the information below!
