We are very excited to be producing the 3rd annual Irish Cocktail Fest – a 32 county celebration of cocktails made with Irish spirits! It’s running from October 15th – 20th 2018 and any licensed bar, restaurant or hotel on the island of Ireland can get involved by showcasing one of the several Irish spirits we are working with and making a cocktail with it for the week of the festival. Registration will be free and will go live in May 2018. Once the venue enters in their details, we’ll edit them and get them live as soon as we can.
All participating venues’ details will be listed on our site and divided up by the county. As soon as the festival starts, the public will be asked to vote for their favourite Irish Cocktail of the festival by using the #BestIrishCocktail on Twitter or by telling us on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GreatIrishBeverages. The winner for 2017 was The Lodge at Ashford Castle with their “Wilde’s Atlantic Way” made with Connemara Peated Irish Whiskey.
Below you can see the list of Irish spirit brands and all the venues we worked with around the island of Ireland for the 2017 edition of the Irish Cocktail Fest. We can’t wait for 2018 but until then, don’t forget to #DrinkIrish
