Entries are now being accepted for this year’s Irish Whiskey Awards, which will take place at the Powerscourt Distillery, Co. Wicklow on Thursday 14th October, Covid-19 permitting.
The awards, which are now in their eighth year, will include twelve categories. The whiskey with the highest overall score will become Irish Whiskey of the Year. Unfortunately, entries and judging of the white spirits, liqueurs, beer and bar categories will not go ahead this year due to a lack of resources and Covid-19 current restrictions but will look to resume in 2022.

“We were very disappointed to cancel last year’s event due to Covid-19. Although, it is still unclear what restrictions will be in place for later this year, we wanted to recognise the emerging and established producers in the industry and raise much needed funds for our charity partner, Mary’s Meals.”
