Barr an Uisce has reached an agreement with Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC to import its Irish Whiskey portfolio into the US marketplace. This announcement coincides with the announcement of the doubling of Barr an Uisce’s portfolio of offerings in its worldwide markets. In 2017, Barr an Uisce was ranked #1 in a New York Times blind tasting of Irish whiskies.
“We are delighted to announce that Vision Wine and Spirits has been appointed the sole US importer for Barr an Uisce Irish Whiskeys. This partnership provides a huge opportunity for Barr an Uisce to even further expand its availability to the discerning whiskey drinkers of the US”, says Jason Stubbs, Managing Director for Barr an Uisce.
“We are privileged to add the award-winning Bar an Uisce offerings to our authentic and storied collection” says D. Dean Williams, President of Vision Wine & Spirits. “We look forward to sharing their incredible new releases with our US distributor partners in the coming months”.
Barr an Uisce is a small batch craft whiskey company hailing from County Wicklow in Ireland. Launched just over two years ago, their fine craft whiskeys are now available in 14 countries and in over 20 US states. They have two whiskeys in the market – Barr an Uisce 1803 which is a ten-year-old single malt and Barr an Uisce Wicklow Rare – a signature blend of four-year-old grain and ten-year-old single malt. In early 2019, Barr an Uisce looks forward to launching two new whiskey expressions with the help of Vision Wine and Spirits. These expressions include Barr an Uisce 16-year-old single malt and Barr an Uisce Wicklow Hills Blend, bringing the product portfolio to four.
Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC is a division of Martignetti Companies, the 7th largest distributor in the United States, and an independent family-owned business since 1908. Vision will be announcing new additions to their growing portfolio in 2019.
