In light of the current Covid-19 crisis, now more than ever Writers’ Tears continues to pledge support to Sweny’s Pharmacy (Dublin, Ireland) which is one of the most celebrated venues featured in James Joyce’s epic novel, Ulysses. Writers’ Tears premium Irish whiskey provides financial and other support to Sweny’s, which was already under threat of closure from rising rent and has had to close temporarily during the Covid-19 lockdown.
