Wicklow’s Powerscourt Distillery, a leading producer of premium whiskey, is proud to announce that it has won six major awards already for 2023.

At the 2023 World Whiskies Awards, the distillery took home two Irish category wins, while at the 2023 Icons of Whiskey Ireland Awards, Powerscourt also received another “Highly Commended” award for “Irish Whiskey category Brand ambassador 2023” going to Alan Malone (European sales manager for the Distillery). The prestigious awards recognise the distillery’s commitment to producing top-quality spirits that are crafted with care and attention to detail.

“We are delighted with these awards that reflect the hard work and dedication of the team since we started in 2018,” said John Cashman, head of NPD & Brand at The Powerscourt Distillery.

“Two whiskeys that reflect the best of our home, County Wicklow, both in concept and collaboration,” he added. “We look forward to these whiskeys taking their deserved place in the World’s best whiskey competition at the end of March.”

These recent accolades add to the hat trick of awards won at national level last November for the Powerscourt Distillery Visitor Centre. These include Best Visitor Attraction, accepted by Gerry Ginty COO, recognition for Paul Corbett as Master Distiller/Master Blender, and a Highly Commended for Campaign Innovator accepted by Santina Kennedy, food & beverage specialist at Powerscourt Distillery.

The Powerscourt Distillery awards come as no surprise to those in the industry who have long recognised the distillery’s commitment to excellence. Now, the team report they are looking forward to an exciting year ahead in 2023!
