The Kilbeggan 18 Year-Old was also selected as the Best Irish Blended Whiskey 13 to 20 Years by the panel of international judges comprising drinks media, master blenders, distillers and industry representatives.  Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey is distilled and aged at the 256 year-old Kilbeggan Distillery, the country’s oldest operating distillery, in County Westmeath. It also won the Worldwide Whiskey of Year award in 2009 in addition to numerous gold medals at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.  A new look for the brand was unveiled in the US just in time for St Patrick’s Day, supported by a 360-degree marketing campaign.

In keeping with the style of advertising for the brand in the US, Michael Cockram, Senior Global Marketing Director at Beam Inc, commented, “Kilbeggan will not be one of Ireland’s best kept secrets for too much longer”.

Other successes for Kilbeggan Distilling Company whiskeys include Connemara Turf Mor being named Best No Age Statement Irish Single Malt and Tyrconnell Single Malt Sherry Finish being named Best Irish Single Malt 12 Years and Under.
