Irish Distillers has been honoured with two accolades at the World Whiskies Awards 2017, which took place recently at the Waldorf Hotel, London, according to a statement it released today (4 April.)
Its Redbreast 21 Years Old was named World’s Best Single Pot Still Whiskey, while Jameson Black Barrel was awarded Best Irish Blended Whiskey.
Commenting on the achievements, Brendan Buckley, Global Innovation & Prestige Whiskeys Director at Irish Distillers, said, “We are delighted that Redbreast 21 Years Old has been recognised with such a prestigious award. Redbreast 21 Years Old is the ultimate expression of the renowned Redbreast range which has placed Irish whiskey in the top echelons of world whiskeys."
"At Irish Distillers, we are constantly searching for new ways to bring Irish whiskey to a wider audience. Jameson has been the iconic brand which has led the way, and Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to the cooper’s method of charring barrels which has proved popular with long time Jameson drinkers and new customers alike.” Buckley added.
The annual awards which is an initiative of Whiskey Magazine was hosted by renowned whiskey author and writer, Charlie MacLean, Neil Ridley, World Whiskies Awards chair and Rupert Wheeler, Whiskey Magazine editor.
