Nobody loves the art of the deal more than your boss, and nobody will appreciate more than him the significance of “1759” -- the year Arthur Guinness took out a 9000-year lease on St. James’s Gate in Dublin. Move over The Donald, there’s a new real estate mogul in town. Well actually an old real estate mogul, but still…
Your Whiskey-Loving Friend
When you hand him this 750ml bottle, his first reaction might be, “But I’m a whiskey lover… it’s like you don’t even know me anymore.” That’s when you inform him that The 1759 was brewed with peated malt sourced from centuries-old Irish distilleries in order to bring out the mellow, caramel flavor believed to have been an important element of those first batches of Guinness. After that you guys can hug.
Your Beer-Loving Brother
Unconventional use of slightly smoky peat, expertly tempered hoppiness, and an ancient hint of caramel? Dude’s going to be indebted to you for life.
Your Highly Competitive Colleague
The 1759 is a very limited edition, so you’ll be giving him that special “I have something nobody else has” feeling, and it’s the first offering in Guinness’s Signature Series, which will base all styles on important dates in the brewery’s history -- so sometime in the future when everyone’s enjoying a later installment in the series, he can tell people, “Yeah, but I was there for 1759.”
Much like your rippling abs, this release won’t last forever. Buy a bottle here for whoever deserves one most. Check the Guinness site to see where to buy in stores, or head here to buy online.
