Irish Distillers broadens portfolio with addition of Castle Brands Irish whiskeys
In a surprise move Irish Distillers has added Knappogue Castle and Clontarf to its portfolio of Irish whiskeys.
Conor McQuaid, CEO and Chairman at Irish Distillers said:
“We are delighted to announce that Knappogue Castle and Clontarf Irish whiskeys are now fully integrated into the Irish Distillers portfolio following Pernod Ricard’s acquisition of Castle Brands in 2019. Knappogue Castle and Clontarf will complement our existing offering of quality Irish whiskey brands.”
“Having recently won a gold medal at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the addition of Knappogue Castle Single Malt presents an exciting opportunity to support our growth strategy in Asia, given the performance of single malts in this region. We look forward to building on the success of this much-loved brand and exploring the potential of the increasingly dynamic Single Malt Irish Whiskey category.”
