The Investment Opportunity

Sales of Irish Whiskey globally are forecast to rocket from 12M nine litre cases this year to 24M nine litre cases by 2030. Every minute, 200 bottles of Irish Whiskey are sold in 135 global markets and there's been a 140% growth in sales volume from 2010 to 2020.

Sales of Irish Whiskey are due to overtake Scotch for first time since prohibition this decade. This is a milestone moment for the category. And the big fish for Irish Whiskey is the USA, home to 240M legal drinkers & 640k outlets and where 43% of all Irish Whiskey is sold.

And that's right where we've launched.

The Brand Story

The Irish Flying Tumbler is a bird with an innate ability to return home. Braving all manner of storm and challenge, the brave flying tumbler always returns to the home loft. We take our inspiration from this plucky adventurer. We’ve returned back home to Ireland to follow our passion for making whiskey that surprises and delights. We see the spirit of the Flying Tumbler in everybody. The drive to travel far and wide but to always return home sharing stories of travels.

The Essence of the Brand

Our brand is anchored on three main tenets. The return home, sharing stories of our travels
and the longitude and latitude of origin. And all of these are conveyed through the daring flying tumbler pigeon who personifies the essence of Flying Tumbler Irish Whiskey.
