Murphy and McNeil | Slainte: St. James Shaving Soap

  • Product Description
    St. James Gate in medieval times was the Western most entrance to the City of Dublin, Ireland, where it stood until 1734. Since that time, the surrounding area has kept the name St. James Gate, despite the actual “gate” having been gone long ago.

    The area surrounding St. James Gate has been home to popular breweries since the 17th century. To this day, the area is home to one of the most famous breweries in the world (look it up!)… and which is currently held on a 9000 year lease signed in 1759.

    This release by Murphy and McNeil is a departure from our normal line of shaving soaps. Released specifically for St. Patrick’s Day 2019, this base (or similar) may see a recurrence during this special holiday each year.

    Another Saint, Saint Patrick, is known as the Patron Saint of Ireland, who famously used the clover to represent the connection between the pagan rooted ‘Trinity,” with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in his efforts to bring Christianity to Ireland. Again, we see the fascinating thread of these symbols like the Trinity, Triskele, Clover/Shamrock, etc… throughout Irish history.

    This soap has many of the same properties you are used to with Murphy and McNeil. The special edition base, Slainte, is a premium product that leverages mutton tallow, duck fat, beef tallow… and best of all Irish stout beer… to create a remarkably smooth shave we think you’ll love. The fragrance on St. James is a delicious oatmeal stout. Please see below for more important information.

                                        This stuff is Awesome! The scent off the puck is slightly different than the aftershave, but this is probably due to the tallow...but it's damn close. Scent isn't overpowering and lasts a long time.... it's truly awesome. When they say you'll want to eat it cause it smells so good... it's true. My first Murphy and McNeil set... won't be my last!
