Dan & Mikes Ice Cream

05/07/13 : We are delighted to be working with Daniel Traas & Michael Barlow of Dan & Mikes Ice Cream “fame”.
Yes, definitely famous! Dan & Mike are by far our youngest clients – both enterprising lads from CBS High School, Clonmel.

They launched their ice cream range as part of the student enterprise awards program and who could have predicted what lay ahead.The lads have recently featured on RTE’s junior Dragon’s Den Program where not only did they play a blinder securing their requested finding but Gavin Duffy described the Plum ice cream as “the best food product (they’ve) had on the whole series of Dragons Den”.

There are now some 9 flavours in the range and now with a recent rebrand in packaging, all ice cream tubs are wearing very funky and vibrant labels ! Looks like the guys knew we were in for some real ice cream weather this year!

O’Hara’s Barrel Aged Series

28/06/13 : “We recently had Kay O Hara of Carlow Brewing Company in for the press pass on their first bottled edition of the O’Hara’s Barrel Aged Series. O’Hara’s Barrel Aged Series comprises limited editions from the O’Hara’s beer range which are matured in Irish Whiskey Barrels to give a really sophisticated product. First in the bottled series is O’Hara’s Leann Folláin extra stout. This label is a real eye catcher with stand out shelf presence amongst its peers …and so it should be.”

New Addition to Teeling Whiskey

11/02/13 : From Liquid Gold Magazine…

The Teeling Whiskey Company is setting the pace these days, with a third release in only four months. This one is just called “Teeling Whiskey” so I think we can reasonably suppose it represents the company’s house style and aspirations.

There are lots of hints from the bottle that Teeling is setting its roots deep in Dublin distilling history. “Since 1782″ flanks what I take to be a phoenix rising from the heat of a pot still. This refers to the recorded involvement of the Teeling family in whiskey manufacture way back then. There has been no distilling in Dublin since the 1970s so this is a marker that Jack Teeling intends to revive it. The “Spirit of Dublin” above the name underscores that intention.

The overall effect of the label recalls the era when the front page of a newspaper was an image-free jumble of typefaces and styles. That and the black bottle (actually dark green) recall the 1890s when the Dublin distillers were riding high and had yet to succumb to the fashion for blends.
