Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on the Green!
Located on Dawson Street, the Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on the Green first opened in 2003.Awarded Best Retailer, Worldwide in the World Whiskey Awards 2013, the store has developed into a mecca for whiskey and wine lovers alike. The store has also developed a loyal group of international customers, who continue to enjoy products from abroad via the store’s website and international shipping service. The other half of the store is devoted to a wonderful collection of both beloved and bespoke wines. 95% of these wines the store imports themselves. A superb selection of other spirits from around the world can also be found. Not to mention a fantastic variety of Craft Beers & Cider.The store runs a variety of tasting events, offering the chance to learn more about a variety of products. Such events act as a platform for the Irish drinks industry and aim to encourage more people to become involved in a fun and enjoyable manner. To assist with this aim, the Celtic Whiskey Club was formed. In a further bid to acknowledge the achievements of Ireland’s Whiskey Industry, the store is delighted to host the‘Irish Whiskey Awards’.
Unfortunately the increase in excise duty and VAT continues to put pressure on the industry as a whole. It is somewhat unfortunate that the Government does not appear to do more to encourage the Irish drinks industry. It is hampered by extremely high rates of duty and the cost of doing business is immense. This ultimately effects the number of people who can be employed. Despite this however, the Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on the Green are committed to working as hard as possible to work through these challenges. So we support this campaign and ask for your support as well.
