Aldi’s Ardfallen Whiskey wins Gold at the International Spirits Challenge

Aldi Ireland has set the bar for quality spirits with yet more award wins, this time courtesy of the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2021 with seven awards in total, across Gold, Silver and Bronze for Aldi’s Whiskey, Gin and Ready to Drink premixed cans too! The Gold Medal winner, Aldi’s Ardfallen Irish Whiskey is available in-store now for just €18.99 – a very winning price for a multi-award winning whiskey!


Winning an ISC medal is an outstanding achievement and underlines a producer’s commitment to quality and innovation. Judging over 1,800 entries from 70 countries worldwide, makes the ISC a truly global competition and the premier event in promoting outstanding quality spirits.


Leading the field, with a Gold Medal win, is Ardfallen Irish Whiskey. Triple distilled and matured in Bourbon Casks, Ardfallen Irish Whiskey is exclusive to Aldi. Ardfallen takes its name from the area from which the malted barley is sourced in County Cork. The whiskey is crafted in small batches and has been meticulously blended to give an aroma of chocolate, almond and green fruit with a lingering sweetness to the taste and a finish of vanilla and cocoa that ends with a slight spiciness. Ardfallen Irish Whiskey previously won Bronze at the Irish Quality Food Awards 2019 and Gold in the Blended Irish Whiskey Category at The World Spirits Awards (WSA).


Tom Doorley, Aldi Drinks Ambassador commented: “It's no surprise to me that Aldi has done so well at the International Spirits Challenge. Anyone who knows Aldi's wine range understands that excellence and brilliant value for money go hand-in-hand. And the same goes for their spirits. Aldi's alliances with some ace distillers have yielded a phenomenal range of superb yet affordable spirits, including a unsurpassed range of gins, not to mention two distinctive whiskeys, all unique to Aldi Ireland.”
