Once the most popular spirit in the world, Irish Whiskey is experiencing a revival fueled by innovation, expertise and heritage. A new breed of distillers, bonders and blenders is emerging. Fabled and once thought to be lost brands and recipes are reappearing. The Irish Whiskey App was created to spread the incredible experiences and stories of Irish whiskey, old and new with audiences all around the world.
The Discover feature of the app will give you instant access to the latest releases, the most popular whiskeys and brands and curated content that is refreshed daily. Even the most passionate Irish whiskey fans are sure to find interesting bottlings, brands and distilleries.
The app launches with a catalog numbering hundreds of whiskeys with more being added each day. The level of information available is unparalleled for Irish whiskey, with everything from the types of wooden casks used in the whiskey’s production, the flavours you can expect and educational content about how whiskey is made.
Users can rate whiskeys and even keep track of their own collections and wishlists through the app. Coming soon on Android is the ability for users to add their own tasting notes and a groundbreaking bottle scanner that gives users the ability to point their phone at a bottle and get immediate information and ratings about it.
With a level of depth that seems endless, the Irish Whiskey App delivers facts, stories and insights into the fascinating history of the whiskeys, brands and distilleries of Ireland. All the way through the app you will find tappable content that gives you even deeper insights.
On iPhone, the app launched mid March, and already has an engaged and growing user base, with 1000s of ratings and user tasting notes already added to the vast catalog of Irish whiskeys. User feedback has been extraordinary, with a flawless 5 star rating in the iPhone App Store and glowing reviews:
● “Love this App, so helpful and easy to use. Great tool for learning, perfect for both experienced whiskey drinkers and also people wanting to explore Irish whiskey!!”

Developed by a small group of whiskey enthusiasts from Dublin, amongst them the founders of Redwind Software, one of Ireland’s original mobile app success stories, everything about this app feels high end and premium. From the Vivino-esque bottle scanner, to the in depth tasting notes, the Irish Whiskey App will appeal to Irish whiskey aficionados as well as newcomers to the category or those with just a passing curiosity.
“We felt that Irish whiskey deserved it’s own dedicated app. There is so much to learn and love about the category, it’s history and it’s future. We are excited and honoured to get to work with so many amazing distillers and brands and be a part of sharing their stories with the world.” said Conor Winders from Barrel Proof Limited.
Co-founder David McMahon added, “with Irish whiskey going through a renaissance at the moment, we wanted to bring the joy of whiskey tasting and appreciation to an even wider audience, making it more accessible for beginners while also catering to the experts.”
