Diageo opens cocktail bar in Dublin Airport
Tanqueray owner Diageo has opened a cocktail and spirits-only bar in Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2.
Tailors Bar is described as ideal for those in search of a ‘luxurious pre-flight beverage’.
Guests can choose drinks from a menu of cocktails made with three Diageo brands: Ketel One Vodka, Tanqueray gin and Roe & Co Irish whiskey.
The décor of the bar is inspired by the three brands, while the design is based on the worlds of fashion and fine tailoring.
Hilary Quinn, Diageo Ireland marketing director, said: “We are immensely proud to bring Irish and international travellers the first-ever cocktail and spirits-only bar to Dublin Airport.
“We are thrilled to showcase the elevated drinks and luxurious experience that discerning travellers can look forward to enjoying before their journey with Ketel One, Tanqueray gin and Roe & Co whiskey at the helm of this exciting opening, just in time for summer 2023 travels.”
Located next door to the Sunglasses Hut in the central thoroughfare of Terminal 2, Tailors is open every day from 10am to 7pm.
The venue offers bar service and table service with limited seating managed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Leonard Miller, head of media sales and brand partnerships at Dublin Airport, added: “This partnership exemplifies our commitment to enhancing the airport journey and providing an exceptional experience for our passengers. We cannot wait for travellers to immerse themselves in the allure of Tailors, where craftsmanship, flavour, and ambiance intertwine.”
Diageo has also opened an alcohol-free pop-up bar adjacent to Tailors, where drinkers can sample zero-ABV versions of Tanqueray, Gordon’s, Guinness and Carlsberg.
Citing Kam Media data from June 2022, Diageo said Ireland was the fastest-growing alcohol-free market globally.
Last month, Diageo promoted Jenna Ba to the role of global brand ambassador for its Tanqueray No. Ten gin.
