Merrys celebrate Irish Whiskey Awards win

Announced on 20 October, 2016 in Tullamore Dew visitor Centre, the awards are world renowned and bestow a mark of quality on the chosen products.

The Irish Whiskey Awards are unique in the world as the judging panel is composed of 160 members of the Celtic Whiskey Club and the ranks of the Irish Whiskey Society. These awards deliver an unbiased view of the Irish spirits category and the quality that it beholds.

Merrys Irish Cream Liqueurs have won many taste awards and accolades down through the years, including several gold medals in the International Spirits Challenges and the San Francisco World Spirits Competitions but this win is particularly sweet as it is on home turf.

The Merrys range using natural flavours has been created to appeal to both Irish and international taste buds using both traditional and non-traditional flavour inspirations: White Chocolate, Strawberry, Toffee Buttermint, Salted Caramel and even Pumpkin Spice!

Don Crowley, General Manager and Master Blender at Merrys says: “Whilst we owe a lot of our success over the last 21 years to the craftsmanship and passion of the team of people who are working here in Clonmel to produce Merrys, there is no doubt that, above all, it is the quality of our ingredients and the freshness of our rich Irish dairy cream that makes Merrys so special. We are lucky enough to be able to bottle cream from grass-fed cows that graze in our lush Golden Vale valley region in small batches within hours of it leaving the farm gate, and to have access to the finest aged Irish whiskey to give it that special taste profile.”
