Published on Feb 15, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled " Irish Whiskey Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global Irish whiskey market reached a value of US$ 4.33 Billion in 2021. Irish whiskey is generally prepared with a blend of un-malted and malted barley that is mainly served with different cocktail recipes and simple soda highballs. It is a dark distilled spirit with a fruity and vanilla taste that is widely available in multiple varieties that differ on the basis of climatic conditions and distillation period. It also exhibits some health benefits if consumed in moderation, including minimizing the risks of developing heart diseases and reducing stress. In comparison to other types of whiskeys, Irish whisky is prepared from a yeast-fermented mash of malted barley, which is usually distilled thrice to provide a lighter and smoother finish.
