Irish Whiskey Museum, The Dubliner

The International drinks group Quintessential Brands is banking on the continued success of the Irish whiskey revolution! Quintessential are investing €4 million into expanding its subsidiary company First Ireland Spirits and is considering further acquisition opportunities in Ireland.

One of the key spirit brands for Quintessential is the development of The Dubliner whiskey; a deluxe Irish whiskey-based liqueur, the James Joyce-inspired Dubliner is a blend of honeycomb, caramel and whiskey flavours. A growing favourite among sweet-toothed whiskey fans.

Speaking on the matter, Warren Scott, Quintessential co-founder and director said, “This investment is part of our on-going strategy to develop Abbeyleix as the home of Irish Cream, boost our production capabilities, build a premium Irish brand portfolio and expand our contract manufacturing business in Ireland”.

Quintessential Brands first acquired First Ireland Spirits in April 2014 and see the acquisition and expansion as an “important step” in the bid for international expansion. The investment is being put towards doubling their current production facility in Abbeyleix, County Laois to approximately 2 million cases per year.
