Bog Family

€550
Going to the bog to save the turf is an age old Irish tradition. Entire families, strong tea and a dram of whiskey were all essential to the job of cutting enough peat to keep fires lit over winter.  The smell of a peat fire can bring any Irish person immediately back to their childhood and has much in common with the smell of fine whiskey.
