Dublin Whiskey Tours - ABFI Map

New Interactive map of Irish Distilleries on ABFI website

We’re loving the new interactive map of Irish distilleries that is now viewable on the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland (ABFI) website. You can sort by planned, new and existing distilleries – that’s 31 distilleries in total, proof that the industry really is one to watch right now!

 


Dublin Whiskey Tours - Fathers Day Competition

Our competition was won by Muireann Kane and her dad

And The Winner Is

They will enjoy a two-hour tasting tour in Dublin where they will sample five premium whiskeys in three of the best whiskeys bars in the city – lucky them!

 

 

 


Dublin Whiskey Tours - Teeling Craft Fair

Teeling Whiskey Plans Spirit of Dublin Summer Craft Fair

Dublin Whiskey Tours - Potstilled

Irish Whiskey Stateside: The Lowdown

Irish whiskey is having an increasingly flirtatious fling with US consumers, according to a new Potstilled.com <link> blog post by Matt Healy. As a brand ambassador for Tullamore Dew in the US, Matt certainly has his eyes and ears to the ground across the water. He explains how new Irish brand entrants to the market have two choices; they can attempt to price themselves below that of Jameson or proceed to be price premium to the most famous Irish whiskey. Check it out – it’s a great read.
