Dublin-based Hi-Spirits Ireland is a subsidiary of US-based Sazerac Company, which distributes a portfolio that includes Paddy Whiskey, Southern Comfort, Buffalo Trace, Fireball, Antica Sambuca and a range of premium spirits and liqueurs.
Echlinville became the first field-to-glass distillery in Ireland and the first new distillery in Northern Ireland for more than 125 years when it began production in 2013. The independent, family-owned distillery has since been at the forefront of Ireland’s spirits revolution with its Dunville’s Irish Whiskey in particular having gained a global following.
“This distribution agreement comes at a particularly good time for us as we’re about to launch the latest addition to our Dunville’s Irish Whiskey family,” said Echlinville Distillery owner Shane Braniff, “Hi-Spirits Ireland will be the sole Irish distributor of Dunville’s 1808 – a versatile modern blend that works well as a house pour, in a mixed drink or in a cocktail. It’s very much a gateway product to the wider Dunville’s range and is perfectly placed in Hi-Spirits’ portfolio to introduce more customers to The Spirit of Belfast.”
George Roberts, Hi-Spirits Ireland Country Manager, added, “The attention to quality in both liquid and exceptional branding ensures Echlinville will make a strong addition to both our Irish Whiskey and Gin portfolio.”
