The Connacht Whiskey Company was delighted to receive the news that all four of our whiskies entered into the 2023 Irish Whiskey Masters run by The Spirits Business won awards.

The recently released Connacht Single Malt Irish Whiskey ‘Spirit of the Atlantic’ won a Gold Medal, as did our very popular port finished Ballyhoo Single Grain Irish Whiskey and our soon to be released ‘Distillery Exclusive’ Connacht Single Malt. We were also pleased to receive a Silver Medal for our Straw Boys Single Grain Irish Whiskey.

Connacht’s Commercial Director, Killian O’Sullivan, commented: “These prestigious awards are amongst the most desirable in the industry and one of the few that we enter. It’s a tremendous testatment to the quality of what our distilling team produces that, yet again, the whiskies we craft in Ballina win gold medals when entered in competition.

Visitors to our distillery will soon be able to purchase the ‘Distillery Exclusive’ Connacht Single Malt Irish Whiskey, a single cask which our Head Distiller and Master Blender believe is an extraordinary representation of what we do.
