Irish Spirit

With gin, rum and tequila booming, it can be easy to overlook categories that can still be filled with potential that are a little less high profile. Whisky remains the second biggest spirits category in the off trade, only beaten by vodka, and is the only spirit to be on par with sales compared to three years ago*, meaning that there is a clear appetite

Irish whisky production is booming, with the island going from four operational distilleries in 2010 to 42 today, and styles aren’t limited to the ‘bright and easy’ triple distilled blends, either. Double distillation, single malts and a selection of casks previously used for sherries and bourbon all add to a rich, varied category just shouting out to be appreciated by bartenders and consumers alike. Here’s a few of our favourites…

*WSTA Market Report December 2022



Matured for up to seven years in Spanish oloroso sherry casks and sweet bourbon barrels for fruity notes to lingering smooth, sweet finish. Great with Fever Tree Ginger Ale and a slice of fresh or dehydrated orange


A blend of triple distilled single malt whiskey with a lighter Irish grain whiskey that has been aged for five years in American oak casks. Great with London Essence Ginger Ale and a slice of fresh or dehydrated orange


Smooth spirit thanks to triple distillation, controlled maturation and masterly blending. An essential Irish icon in the category. Basically, mix this with just about any ginger ale and you are on to a winner.  The last decade or so has seen some pretty significant improvements in the liquid, so it may well be worth a revisit


An unexpected Irish single malt, it is rich in hue and bold in taste. The Sexton is exclusively matured in former oloroso sherry casks to achieve a perfect balance between rich, dried fruits and memorable toasted oak notes to offer a smooth finish and leave you wanting for more. Aromas of nuts and dark chocolate are followed by marzipan, spices and fruits. Serve it with soda and a slice of orange, or just over ice


Triple-distilled and aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks to develop its distinctive smoothness, and actually hugely popular overseas – second only to Jameson. Silky smooth, soft and gently spiced, a lighter, complex ginger ale is a top choice – try London Essence and an orange zest
