Echlinville Distillery's Dunville’s PX 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey has picked up its third consecutive World Whiskies Award. The Co. Down-based distillery won the 2016 Irish Whiskey Award in the same category.
Reportedly, Dunville’s was among the world’s best known Irish whiskeys until the demise of the Royal Belfast Distillery in 1936.
It was revived by The Echlinville Distillery owner Shane Braniff, who made it one of Echlinville’s founding goals to bring ‘The Spirit of Belfast’ back to the world.
According to Braniff: "Until recently, the only place you could buy a bottle of Dunville’s whiskey was at auction, but we are proud to have restored The Spirit of Belfast to its rightful place among the premier whiskeys of the world."
"To win three consecutive World Whiskies Awards in such a competitive category is almost unheard of, and we are incredibly proud of that achievement." He added.
