Celebrating & promoting Irish made drinks

Great Irish Beverages is all about celebrating and promoting Irish made drinks. This takes us all around the world and across the island of Ireland. Our services include publicity, brand advocacy and experiential & online marketing. One week saw us conducting cocktail training for Jameson bartenders in Japan and following that up with running the Irish Gin & Tonic Fest with hundreds of venues around Ireland.

Director and founder Oisin Davis, has 25 years of hospitality and drinks industry experience. He’s had lots of job titles in those sectors – from bouncer to brand owner! In addition to Great Irish Beverages, he was a co-founder and previous director of Poacher’s Premium Irish Mixers and co-founder of The Virgin Mary Bar, the first non alcoholic bar in Europe. He also enjoys writing and contributes to Food & Wine Ireland with the Business Post and was a food columnist in The Irish Times for five years. In 2021 Oisin won Best Spirits Writer at The Irish Food Writing Awards.

Irish Food & Drink Month

Pride in Irish food has never been stronger in Ireland’s hospitality sector. Across the country, you’ll find Irish produce taking front and centre of most menus. Local food tastes best when enjoyed with local drinks and Ireland is no exception.  Our native drinks pair wonderfully well with Irish meats, fish, farmed produce and cheeses. We want to see those drinks as well loved as the foods they share the same land with. That’s why we’re rolling out a brand new nationwide festival for all of October 2022 –  Irish Food & Drink Month.

We are working with a number of different Irish drinks brands across many sectors for this project. Any licensed bar, restaurant or hotel can register for free and in order to get involved, they have to create and sell a signature Irish food & drink pairing. There will be a public vote on Instagram and Facebook for which participating venue has the best Irish food & drink pairing in the country. And different brands are looking to host their own food pairing events – so get stuck in with us! Click here and register your venue now.
