NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 18, 2021
Inis Tine Uisce Teoranta, Ireland’s premium whiskey and spirits company, is proud to announce their recent growth in three U.S. Control States. Fresh off big wins at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Awards with their Blended Irish Whiskey earning a Gold Medal and their Heather Infused Irish Gin earning a Silver Medal, Grace O’Malley has seen accelerated growth in Pennsylvania and Michigan. Proclamation Whiskey, who also won a Gold Medal at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Awards, has witnessed positive gains in Michigan and New Hampshire.
“It is very rare for an Irish spirits brand to gain traction in several control states within 12 months of launching in the market. Not only do we have a compelling story as the first Irish whiskey named after a woman, the legendary 16th Century Irish Pirate Queen, but our liquid is exceptional and speaks for itself,” said Stephen Cope, Founder and Managing Director of Grace O’Malley Spirits.
With a flash sale happening this week in Pennsylvania, Grace O’Malley is available in over 110 stores throughout the state. In Michigan, Grace O’ Malley Blended Irish Whiskey and Heather Infused Gin are available in addition to Proclamation Whiskey. Proclamation has also just landed in New Hampshire. Both brands boast the same Co. Mayo-based owner as Grace O’Malley, Inis Tine Uisce Teoranta and the same Master Blender, Paul Caris.
Paul Caris, former winemaker and Bordeaux-Native, brings an impeccable palate and years of experience to Grace O’Malley and Proclamation Whiskey as Master Blender. Boasting one of the highest malt contents in the blended whiskey category at 46%, Grace O’Malley’s premium whiskey excites the senses and provides a smooth complexity never before tasted. Proclamation Whiskey, conceived to honor the history of the people behind the birth of the 1916 Proclamation, is a triple distilled blend, aged in American oak barrels. Matured in bourbon casks, the blend includes a touch of sherry-finished malt, providing a complex character and tasting notes that reveal an abundance of fruit and creaminess.
The suggested retail price (SRP) for Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey is $36.99 and $36.99 for the Heather Infused Irish Gin. The suggested retail price for Proclamation Blended Irish Whiskey is $29.99.
