Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard, maker of the world’s leading Irish whiskey, Jameson, has been named Whisky Distiller of the Year at the Icons of Whisky Awards – Global 2013. This is the second year running that the company has won this award. Further success followed as Irish Distillers’ Redbreast 12 Cask Strength scooped the Best Irish Pot Still award.

The awards underline an impressive year for Irish Distillers, with sales of its flagship Jameson brand reaching four million cases globally. Other recent highlights include the successful launch of Yellow Spot into the Single Pot Still range, as well as the launch of the coveted Midleton Single Cask Releases in February this year.

Peter Morehead, Production Director for Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard, says: “As one of the most respected whisky awards in the world, we are incredibly proud to be recognised once again by the Icons of Whisky Awards. We have been vocal about our ambitions for the Irish whiskey category over the next ten years as we aim to increase global awareness and appreciation for the quality of Irish whiskey, so these awards are greatly appreciated by all the team as the ultimate recognition of our ambition to grow the popularity of Irish whiskey around the world.”
