Fans have estimated the number of times Tommy Shelby has handed a glass of whiskey over Peaky Blinders. That number: 213. For 36 hours of television, that’s almost 6 glasses per episode. On set, during filming, that number is probably in the hundreds. (Actor Cillian Murphy estimates that there are even more cigarettes; he says he probably smoked 3,000 each season.) Obviously, Murphy doesn’t actually drink on set: the crew supposedly uses tea, lots of tea. (When it comes to cigarettes, the crew uses fake herbal cigarettes, which apparently stick to Murphy’s lips, which is why you’ll practically see him gum cigarettes in Season 6.)
If Tommy was drinking whiskey, he’d probably be drinking something a little different from what the fans pour at home.
But if you’re looking to get your whiskey fix in the minds of Tommy and the rest of the Shelby family, Bushmills has just launched a limited version of the exact liquor seen on the show, the Prohibition Blend Irish Whiskey.
The whiskey brand returns to its roots with a blend that comes closest to what would have been served at the Garrison pub in the early 1900s, transporting you right into the setting of the show. Made without chill filtration, more alcohol (this bottle has 46% ABV) and aged in bourbon casks, the whiskey uses the same methods used during Prohibition. The result: A spicy mix of rye bread, almonds, orange marmalade and cinnamon, accented with citrus and vanilla. It is perhaps as close as Birmingham to the early 20th century and the Shelby Company Limited.
