From the founding of the Guinness brewery in 1759 to the creation of Baileys four decades ago, our Irish business carries a huge legacy behind it. Combining this with our vision for the future, we've built the best beer, liqueur and spirits brands Ireland has to offer.

With innovation at our core, we are constantly looking to create new experiences for the millions of customers who enjoy our Irish brands every year. For example, in 2021 we launched Guinness Nitrosurge, an innovative and easy way to experience the ritual of Guinness' famed and settle, two part pour at home.
