It’s hard to believe that it is now ten years since William Grant & Sons bought the iconic Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey brand in 2010.

This has been skilfully guided by the experienced Tullamore team who deftly led the brand through the change of ownership process. They are still very much to the fore there today.

To mark this ten year anniversary, Tullamore D.E.W. have commissioned Irish artist Claudine O’Sullivan to create a limited edition print to partner with a commemorative edition of their wonderful Phoenix expression as prizes in an online competition. Read more over on my Irish Whiskey site at
