Page 1 of 11

Global sales of Irish whiskey have soared by more than 300% in the past decade – an indication that the category’s growth shows no sign of slowing. We present award-winning expressions from our latest blind-tasting competition.

The Spirits Business held its annual Irish Whiskey Masters last month, where an experienced panel of judges recognised the best bottlings in the business.

Looking across multiple categories, from blended to single grain, a wide range of whiskeys were awarded the top accolade of Master medal for their quality.

The individual scores of each entrant have not been revealed, however these are 10 of the highest rated medalists in the competition, in no particular order.

While some expressions are not standard priced, our judges have given each Irish whiskey listed here the seal of approval for offering excellent quality within their respective price categories.
