Irish Whiskey Collection opens at Dublin Airport

A new-look Irish Whiskey Collection outlet offering 121 different expressions has opened in Dublin Airport’s Terminal 1.

The new whisky outlet in Dublin Airport boasts nearly 400 different whiskies

Created by London-based airport specialist retail design company The Design Solution, The Irish Whiskey Collection is located within the airport’s new €8 million store The Loop, which boasts a total of 371 whiskies from around the world.

In addition, there are six stands displaying numerous limited edition whiskeys carrying price tags from €3,000 to €6,000.

Aer Rianta International (ARI), a subsidiary of Dublin Airport Authority, operates the store.

“This was a fantastic project to work as we were able to create an epicentre bringing the feeling of a bar to the heart of the buzz in this popular store,” commented Kevin Patience, creative director of The Design Solution.

“With a stunning emperado marble surface, the bar is also a functional piece of furniture which makes the most of the space – always a scarce commodity in airport stores.

“We took the original design we had created in Terminal 2 in 2010 which features extensive copper and contemporised that heritage in a luxury solution that makes it easy for shoppers to explore and navigate the category.”

The design of the store has been chosen to emulate the “contemporary masculinity of a gentleman’s club”, and features polished copper framing, black painted glass and amber back-illuminated acrylic to “play on the tones from the whiskey”.
