The explosion of the Irish gin market in recent years has seen the launch of more than 50 brands in the country and 20 gin producers, with 12 new brands introduced in 2018, according to figures by the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland (AFBI).

Last year, the AFBI also predicted that Irish gin will “go global” and grow exports to the US, Canada, UK and Germany. The popularity of the category also saw the launch of an Irish Gin and Tonic Festival in 2016.

Alcohol producers in the Emerald Isle are clearly taking note of the trend with more distillers unveiling a variety of Irish gins. A number of the producers have also since moved into Irish whiskey and launched flavoured line extensions.
