Irish Whiskey – Which Way Forward?

Writing a blog about the future of Irish Whiskey with a headline photo of a trio of Scottish Single Malts released by the supermarket chain Lidl may seem a little askew – but it highlights an issue pertinent to the current Irish Whiskey industry.

Imagine I’m a supermarket chain of similar standing.

I want some Irish Whiskey.

Perhaps a single pot still, a single malt & a single grain to show off what Ireland has to offer.

I have the branding ready to go.

I have the bottling plant primed.

I have the customers.

Can Irish Whiskey deliver – like yesterday – to capitalise on the Scottish release?

Thoughts welcome.

    1. The rich peaty taste of Islay whisky is seen by many as the pinnacle of Scottish distillation.
      Single pot still would be the Irish equivalent.
      If a team is going to be fielded the best player should be included.


      1. Oh, believe me, my friend, I am all for pot still. Just saying that so far what I am seeing here in terms of private-label Irish is single-malt, grain, or blends.
