  • Smirnoff


    Smirnoff, the world's number one spirit brand*traces its origins to the distillery established by P.A. Smirnoff in Moscow in 1864. The distillery was closed after the Bolshevik revolution, but the brand was revived by P.A.'s son, Vladimir, in France in the 1920s after his escape from Russia. Smirnoff vodka was first made in America in March 1934, three months after the repeal of Prohibition.

    Smirnoff is triple distilled which ensures heightened purity and every single drop of Smirnoff No.21 takes 8 hours to filter through hardwood charcoal in a 10 column stage process.

    In a January 2005 New York Times blind test of 21 world-class vodkas, Smirnoff was named its "hands-down favourite". Smirnoff has always been known for quality vodka and is enjoyed responsibly in 130 countries around the world.

  • Smithwick's


    300 years ago, in 1710, John Smithwick began brewing his first Ales – although the Smithwick's story started long before then. John Smithwick chose the site of an ancient monastery – St. Francis' Abbey – to position his brewery. John was inspired by a tradition of brewing on this site, the foundations of which were laid four centuries earlier.

    Back in the 13th century The Franciscans established an Abbey, with its own well, on the banks of the River Nore in Kilkenny. Whilst brewing and barley cultivation are recorded in the Irish Annals from the mists of time, the strong brewing tradition that exists in Kilkenny started with these monks who brewed their own light ale for their visitors using water from St. Francis' Well.

    To this day the Abbey stands proudly at the heart of the brewery and continues to inspire our brewers. Smithwick's is long established as the number one ale in Ireland and the largest imported ale in the USA and Canada. Smithwick's Superior Irish Ale – crafted and perfected since 1710.
