The first year for any new whiskey brand is challenging and part of that, is being brave enough to place your brand front and center before a variety of panelists and whiskey experts for recognition in Whiskey Award Competitions around the globe.
We are proud to announce that both LAMBAY WHISKEY SMALL BATCH BLEND & LAMBAY WHISKEY SINGLE MALT each won gold medals at the World Spirit Awards in February 2018. Lambay Irish Whiskey is growing it’s international reach all over the world. This gold medal was the first win for LIWC and marks the recognition of quality and future growth for this unique Irish Whiskey brand.
In March, our Lambay Whiskey Small Batch Blend received 87 points in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and 92 points for our Lambay Whiskey Single Malt.
Confirming our recognition as a new premium crafted Irish whiskey to the market, Whisky Advocate Spring Issue, marked our Lambay Whiskey Single Malt at 90 points quoting” A finish of bitter orange, pepper, and fondant cream makes this a worthy addition to the Cognac cask revival”. (Whisky Advocate)
Spring then sprung into Summer and several more awards followed- including Silver medal at the International Spirits Challenge, San Francisco Spirits Competition and International Wine & Spirits Awards.
Most recently Lambay Whiskey Small Batch Blend and Lambay Single Malt were awarded SILVER OUTSTANDING in the category of Irish Blended and Irish Single Malts at the Whiskies of the World Awards in San Francisco.
Lambay Irish Whiskey reflects the current climate of hand-crafted Irish Spirits in the market that marry classical approaches with modern ingenuity, showcasing local ingredients, and an authentic story. However, for us its more than just a story – Lambay Irish Whiskey’s distinct flavor is truly the result of good partnerships, crafted distilling techniques and innovative blending and maturation.
