Icons of Whisky Ireland 2022 winners unveiled

In a return to in-person awards ceremonies, Irish whiskey’s great and good gathered together at the Iveagh Garden Hotel in Dublin on 25th November for the Icons of Whisky Ireland 2022 regional awards, hosted by Whisky Magazine.

The Icons of Whisky awards aim to celebrate the best and brightest people and places in the sector – not just the distilleries and the teams that work in them, but also the individuals and businesses that work to support and promote them and their products.

Christopher Coates, Editor of Whisky Magazine, said: “This year’s results are a testament to the great work that’s been done by Irish whiskey makers over the past year. It’s truly delightful to see the Irish industry growing at a rapid pace and drinkers’ interest in Irish whiskey increasing exponentially. I’m certain this positive trend will continue and that competition in our Icons of Whisky categories will remain fierce for decades to come.”
