Irish-whiskeyMatt Chambers and Karen Taylor, Whisky For Everyone –
“The whiskey industry in Ireland is experiencing an unprecedented boom at the moment and this will continue to accelerate in 2017.

“A number of new distilleries will begin production, while slightly older distilleries that have been in production for a few years will release their first products. Some are also making gin, vodka and poitín as they wait for their whiskey to mature. This is positive for the wider growth of Irish spirits.

“The profile of rising stars such as the Teeling Whiskey Company will continue to grow. Also, experimentation by new brands will be key to success and standing out from the competition.

“This, coupled with big brands such as Jameson and Bushmills offering innovative new product ranges to entice new consumers, makes it an exciting time for the Irish whiskey category.”

    yep – agree – nice to have a blended economy – rants ‘n’ raves on the one hand, and more sober reflections on the other. But “qualifications” while a great idea, what would you use, or, provide?
