Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s The Irishman – Single Malt has won four awards at the 2018 London Spirits Competition, which took place on March 8-9.
It beat off 470 entries to claim the overall ‘Spirit of the Year’ award and also won ‘Whiskey of the Year’, a Gold Medal award and ‘Best in Show from Ireland’.
The London Spirits Competition judges spirits on three criteria: drinkability, value and appearance (to include packaging).
Walsh Whiskey Distillery Managing Director Bernard Walsh said: “We are naturally delighted as the London Spirits Competition is among the most prestigious and hotly contested awards programmes. The proposition behind all our whiskeys is to offer very high-quality whiskeys at an affordable price.
“The Irishman – Single Malt is truly a rare breed, being a triple-distilled, Irish, single malt. As the judges have already discovered, it won’t disappoint.”
The Irishman range also includes: The Irishman – Founder’s Reserve, The Irishman – 12yo single malt, The Irishman – 17yo single cask single malt and annual cask strength finishes.
