Bushmills Irish Whiskey, the world's oldest licensed distillery, will buy Detroiters a free whiskey on St. Patrick's Day — for a good cause.

As part of its "First Whiskey of Paddy's Day" program, adults 21 or older can order a Bushmills to-go from a local pub or restaurant and Bushmills will pick up the tab. All you have to do is take a photo of the receipt and upload it to and the company will reimburse you up to $6.

And it's not just about celebrating St Patrick's Day. For every drink ordered, Bushmills will donate up to $25,000 to the US Bartenders Guild to benefit furloughed bar and restaurant staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company says it also donated $250,000 to the organization.

We'll drink to that.
