IrishAmerican Trading Company Expands United States Distribution

IrishAmerican Trading Company is the distiller of two distinct premium Irish Whiskeys; IrishAmerican Classic Blend and IrishAmerican 10-Year-Old Single Malt. Both brands are double distilled in copper pot still and aged in American oak barrels in Ireland.

The founder of IrishAmerican Trading Company, John McKay, was inspired to bring to life a lifestyle brand that epitomizes the enduring relationship between Ireland and America. These award winning products won Silver Medals at San Francisco International Spirits Competition in 2018, Double Gold & Silver Medals at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of American (WSWA) Conference in 2017, and Gold & Silver Medals at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition in 2017.

Commenting on the partnership, John McKay, CEO of IrishAmerican Trading Company, stated “Having established a firm base in the US (Boston & New York) and Ireland, 2018 is about expansion. A launch in Canada is imminent and expanding into the UK, Germany and Asia are priorities. A critical component of our marketing strategy focuses on having people on the ground driving the business forward and that focus will continue with the newly formed BluTango partnership.”

Mr. Harold “Corky” Graff, founder and senior vice president of sales of BluTango, commented, “We are very excited about the relationship we have developed with IrishAmerican Trading Company. The US market for Irish Whiskey is outpacing the growth in other spirit categories, and we are proud to be including IrishAmerican Whiskeys in our product portfolio. Even though we only entered into an agreement to represent IrishAmerican Trading Company a few weeks ago, we have already signed up a number of distributors and orders have started to roll in. Further, these products fit perfectly into our product strategy which is focused on representing quality products from independent producers.”

The Irish whiskey category continued its “substantial growth” in 2016 with value sales soaring 19.8% to US$795 million in the calendar year, Distilled Spirits Council figures show. The recent growth continues a remarkable upward trend. According to the Distilled Spirits Council volume sales of premium and super-premium Irish whiskey in the US exploded by 736% and 3456% respectively since 2002 (Source: https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2017/03/us-irish-whiskey-sales-climb-20-in-2016).
