The new advertisement from Tullamore Dew, one of Ireland’s most popular whiskeys, is getting rave reviews from Huffington Post Taste, Advertising Age and Creative Online as an “awesome surprise” and the “envy of other booze ads”.

The short film, “The Parting Glass,” follows a group of young suited friends walking through the Irish countryside in the rain to a graveyard where they raise a glass of the whiskey to a friend. There’s a nice twist at the end.

The song “The Parting Glass,” a Scottish and Irish traditional song often sung at the end of a gathering of friends, is heard throughout. As the men march up the hill James Joyce is quoted.

“Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.”

Ad Age described the short film as “a beautiful story, expertly told.”

The short film does well to showcase Ireland (its countryside and culture) while marrying a more modern view through the tattooed, well turned-out young men.

The ad is currently running in Europe. It was created out of a New York boutique agency, Opperman Weiss and was directed by Laurence Dunmore. 

Here’s the ad:
