The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and Jay Bradley swept the board at the 2022 Best Business Awards, winning all three awards entered. F&B Networker picked up on our medal haul in their recent article and you can read more here.
Winning Best Innovation, and Disruptor of the Year for The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and Outstanding Entrepreneur for Jay Bradley at the UK’s highest profile awards, the Best Business Awards, is an outstanding achievement for the young company. Jay founded The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and sister company Whiskey & Wealth Club in 2018 and has been winning awards ever since. These latest awards are recognition of the innovative approach Jay Bradley takes when crafting whiskeys such as The Devil’s Keep.
The article touches on The Devil’s Keep’s recent success at the World Whiskies Awards where it was judged Best Irish Single Malt across all categories, while our later releases, The Taoscán and The Brollach were awarded Silver and Bronze.
The Chairman of the Best Business Awards celebrated our success, noting that we were “reviving the whiskey-making art by elevating it with science”… to create “expertly crafted rare whiskeys with their own unique flavour and aroma”. As he says “This is a brilliant start for The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and a real boost for the Irish whiskey industry. Sláinte! to entrepreneur Jay Bradley for putting mass production in its place and reviving the art of crafting superb Irish whiskey the old-fashioned way with a bit of help from science! In the 19th century, Irish whiskey dominated the market, and Jay has brought the spirit back to its former glory.”
We’re exceptionally proud to have won these awards and the accompanying recognition from business leaders of our innovative methods. Starting out during the Covid-19 pandemic and building the business at a time of great logistical difficulties hasn’t been without its challenges, but awards such as this are proof that the company is creating something special.
