Each year in The Spirits Business’s Irish Whiskey Masters, a panel of expert judges blind taste an array of variants representing different price points and subcategories within the industry.

The Irish Whiskey Masters 2015 in particular demonstrated the diversity and heightened quality in the sector, with an abundance of Masters and Gold medals awarded to worthy brands.

As St. Patrick’s Day (17 March) approaches, we have handpicked a number of medalists from the latest Irish Whiskey Masters to give revelers some high quality spirits alternatives to Guinness.

And as consumer knowledge in the sector grows, interest is diversifying away from the leading blends to single malts, single grains and single pot still variants.
