As the much-anticipated launch of the Dublin Liberties Distillery draws closer, our Irish whiskeys are continuing to impress industry experts the world over. Adding to the many gold medals won this year so far, the whiskeys have recently won four gold medals in the 2018 International Review of Spirits, and a further four in the Irish Whiskey Masters. In addition, The Dubliner Irish Whiskey’s The Dubliner Master Distiller’s Reserve won the highly impressive acclaim of ‘Whisky of the Year’ at USA Spirits Ratings 2018.
These wins take the portfolio’s gold medal tally this year to 12, with many competition results still to be announced.
