The Spirit We Share
The water, the grain, the skill of the master distiller. The grape, the pressing, the vintner's tender loving care. In the world of spirits and wines, the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. And few companies, if any, are greater than the sum of their parts than Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard.
To begin with we're home to Jameson Irish Whiskey, triple distilled to be twice as smooth and the world's fastest growing whiskey brand. Also in our portfolio is Powers Gold Label, Paddy and the Single Pot Still range of Midleton – Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy, Powers John's Lane, Greenspot, Yellowspot and Redbreast. Then there are some of Ireland's favourite spirit brands – Powers, Paddy, Cork Dry Gin, Huzzar Vodka and our wine cooler brand – West Coast Cooler.
And to finish we also market and distribute Pernod Ricard premium wine and spirit brands within Ireland including ABSOLUT, Havana Club, Malibu, Jacob's Creek, Brancott Estate, Mumm and Perrier-Jouët.
Whilst our Irish heritage remains an enduring inspiration, we're also delighted to be part of the Pernod Ricard group. Because we're not only passionate about our roots, we are also now part of the world's joint biggest name in wine and spirits. The group employs more than 18,000 people in 70 countries and our global reach gives us vital access to some of the best minds in the worldwide drinks industry.
With around 30 glasses of Jameson Irish Whiskey enjoyed every second of every minute of every hour of every single day somewhere in the world, Irish Distillers were delighted when the success of the brand was formally recognised with two leading export awards at the end of 2011.
- Firstly Irish Distillers was awarded with the Bord Bia Food and Drink Export Award in 2011.
- We were also the joint winner of the Irish Food and Drink Export Award in 2011 at the Irish Exporters Association's Export Industry Awards.
- Most recently we were named the first ever In Business Editors Choice Awards for Exporter of the Year at their 2012 awards.
