Taylor Swift Is Probably Toasting Her Record Breaking Grammy Win With Whiskey- Here’s Why
For Taylor Swift, the 2021 Grammy’s were a big milestone for her. Not only did she win Album of the year, but it was also the first time she’s graced the Grammy stage since 2016.
“[Taylor Swift] ties the Guinness World Records title for the most Album of the Year awards won at the Grammys.
Now she shares the title with a crew of all-male music legends, including Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon, making her the first female artist in history to attain this title.” According to Guinness World Records.
In honor of her big win and a newly broken record, we’re talking about all the times Taylor Swift sings about whiskey and speculate about which brands she might be singing about.
whiskey on ice — Gorgeous
Classic. Both the song and the drink. Singing about her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and when they first started seeing one another. It was potentially set in Los Angeles to coincide with Delicate (another song from the same album about Joe). I’m guessing that with all the new relationship feelings, they were drunk on something stronger than the drinks in the bar- not expensive whiskey.
Our guess is she’s singing about Jameson Irish Whiskey.
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed — Getaway Car
Ah, Getaway Car. I’d be lying if I don’t sing thing song violently in my car. Allegedly about her highly publicized relationship with Tom Hiddleston, This song is a favorite of swifties everywhere. It begs the question, did she and Tom drink old fashions together? and if so, what whiskey was in it?
My best guess, Buffalo Trace. Why? Because when you google “Met Gala 2016 whiskey” (Like I did) Buffalo Trace comes up.
Tennessee whiskey — London Boy
London Boy is all about how much she loves her hometown but is in love with a British guy. In the song, she sings about all the typical American things she loves, including Tennessee whiskey. Old No. 7 is the obvious answer here, but I’d prefer to think she’s referring to Chattanooga.
…but I didn’t pour the whiskey — this is me trying
This is me trying has a very dark side to it. If you’ve watched her Disney+ Folklore sessions, you know she’s mentioned when she wrote this song she was really coming from the point of view of an addict. So take from that what you will.
With all that backstory what whiskey was she not pouring out? We’re going with Weller Full Proof.
I don’t like a gold rush – gold rush
The goldrush is a super simple cocktail made up of bourbon, honey, and fresh lemon juice. You could say it’s the lesser-known cousin of the whiskey sour. However, equally delicious.
Admittedly, this one may be a stretch since, in the song, she’s referring to events that are happening (i.e., the literal gold rush) but any excuse to talk about a cocktail.
