While the pandemic hit a lot of people and businesses pretty hard, the three men of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia have a special affinity for bars and bartenders. The TV show, now entering its record-breaking 15th season, surrounds a group of self-absorbed friends who run an Irish bar called Paddy’s Pub. And in an example of life imitating art, the show’s stars and co-creators — Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney— have launched a new whiskey brand called Four Walls.
Four Walls, so far, consists of two whiskeys, with all of the proceeds going to non-profit organizations that specifically help bars and bartenders whose businesses have suffered since the pandemic. Leading off is a bottle of single malt Cask Strength Single Barrel Irish whiskey that’s been aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 15 years to honor the show’s 15-year tenure. This extremely rare maturation is made even more exclusive by the limited run of just 755 bottles, all of which come with autographed cards by the boys themselves.
The second expression is made to be a utility whiskey that you can sip neat or mix into a cocktail. The Bartender’s Blend Limited Edition mixes triple-distilled Irish whiskey that’s been aged 5 years with Wigle Whiskey, an award-winning artisan brand from Pennsylvania.
While there has been an undeniable uptick in celebrity-owned liquor over the past decade, Four Walls is one of the more notable, not just for its exceptional rarity and quality, but in how it’s set up to help out the community in the process. You can grab yourself one of these exquisite bottles on the Four Walls website, with the Bartender’s Blend going for $90 and the 15-Year Cask Strength Single Barrel going for a whopping $1,000.
