IWSC awards Muldoon Silver

A relatively new Waterford startup won its first major world award at the International Wines and Spirits Competition in London recently.

Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur by Anchor Spirits Ireland competed against the world’s finest liqueurs to be awarded the Silver Medal in its category. Muldoon already holds a Gold Medal from the prestigious Irish Whiskey Society and a Blas na hEireann accolade, the country’s biggest competition for quality Irish produce.

The multi-award-winning liqueur comes from the same stable as Thin Gin, winner of Best Irish Gin at the most recent Irish Whiskey Awards.

“The IWSC is recognised globally and to be judged against some of the world’s finest brands and win Silver is a huge endorsement of Muldoon,” said the Managing Director of Anchor Spirits Ireland Nichola Beresford, “It’s also a great help to our sales team as it’s nice to have yet another award to talk about in such a competitive market.”

Anchor Spirits Ireland was co-founded in 2013 by Timmy Ryan and Nichola, two newcomers to the drinks industry.  Both are well-known media figures in Waterford and moving into business was a huge departure for the couple who’ve just announced substantial fresh investment from a private US investor and who’re preparing to move to a new distillery facility this Autumn. It’s expected that the expansion will create at least 10 new full- and part-time positions within the Waterford-based company in the coming months.

Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur is a premium spirit made from genuine Irish whiskey coupled with traditional Irish toffee and hazelnut flavours. Sweet on the nose, but less so on the palate, Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur has been gaining appreciation in Ireland, Germany and other parts of Europe.
