IRELAND: Cooley unveils Connemara rebranding

By | 1 September 2009

Ireland's Cooley Distillery has unveiled new branding for its Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish whiskeys.

In a bid to highlight the brand's roots, the company said today (1 September) that it also wants the brand to maintain its 'premium' look.

"Connemara is a truly unique Irish whiskey based on the rich heritage of distilling used in the West of Ireland and is the most decorated Irish whiskey of recent times," said Jack Teeling, sales and marketing director for Cooley Distillery.

"To communicate these unique selling points we have given Connemara a new appearance which celebrates its Irish heritage while still having a contemporary premium feel."

To coincide with the packaging launch, Cooley has extended the Connemara range with the launch of a 'Small Batch Collection' series, involving limited edition bottlings of new expressions of Connemara Peated Single Malt.

The first release involves "finishing" Connemara in Sherry casks, which is bottled at 46%.

Cooley Distillery launched a 15-year-old small-batch bottling of its Greenore Single Grain Whiskey brand in May.

The company claimed this to be the oldest bottling of an Irish grain whiskey to have been released on the market.
