Irish Craft Cocktail Awards 2019 Winners Announced

In Featured, News and Comment

Fourteen Categories Recognised at the 2019 Irish Craft Cocktail Awards

The 2019 Irish Craft Cocktail Awards (ICCA) ceremony took place at The Well in Dublin on Sunday 1st December. Following both public and industry-only voting phases, awards were duly handed out to fourteen categories, recognising the excellence of venues and individuals within the Irish cocktail industry.

BarLifeUK were not in attendance and so cannot report how the night passed, although the fact it took a full 24 hours for the results to appear on ICCA social media probably indicates the ceremony was a hell of a party. Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up, and to the ICCA organisers for another successful event.
