Irish coffee is only as good as the whiskey that's in it. Jameson is the whiskey we use.
Flying Boats and Coffee
1942 - As the story goes, a flying boat full of American passengers was recalled to Foynes Airbase after struggling against heavy storms for several hours. The flight landed safely at the airbase, and the passengers disembarked. Though grateful to be alive, they were cold and miserable in the freezing night air.
Joseph Sheridan (1909-1962), the chef at the airbase terminal restaurant caught sight of the chilly passengers. He decided to whip up a concoction that would warm their bodies as well as their spirits. Sheridan brewed up some hot coffee and added a splash of good Irish whiskey to the mix. The passengers enjoyed the hot coffee’s unique flavor. One passenger even asked Sheridan if they were drinking Brazilian coffee. Chef Sheridan famously replied,
“No, that’s Irish coffee.”
By 1945 the era of the Flying Boat
was coming to an end and Foynes closed in order to make way for land planes. A
new airport was opened on the other side of the Shannon Estuary - Shannon
International Airport. Joe Sheridan, now working in Shannon, took his famous drink to the new airport and worked there until 1952. As a tribute to Joe Sheridan , a plaque honoring his achievement can be seen outside the Joe Sheridan Cafe Bar in Shannon International Airport - now the new gateway to the south-west of Ireland.
