Protecting our geographical indications
Much of the international success of the Irish spirits industry is the result of the quality and strong reputation of the products and international brands, which Irish producers have developed, along with the strong rules on spirit definitions, geographical indications (GIs), and more recently FSAI Guidelines on the marketing and labelling for a number of Irish spirits categories.
Supporting and promoting Irish spirit categories
Drinks Ireland|Spirits facilitates a number of working groups which provide a forum for members to discuss the ongoing development of category-specific sectors and the promotion of Irish Cream Liqueur, Irish Poitín/Poteen and Irish Gin.
Drinks Ireland|Spirits continues to play a leading role in successful efforts to protect Irish spirits GIs and categories. We work to protect the legal status and integrity of these categories is maintained at home, in the EU and abroad.
