Doyle profit falls

The Doyle Collection increased its turnover by €2 million last year in spite of the impact of sterling and dollar translations on its euro-denominated accounts.
Figures for Doyle Hotels (Holdings) Ltd show that the group recorded turnover of €135 million last year, up from €133 million in 2015.
This was in spite of the impact of sterling’s decline  and a weaker dollar. 
The accounts also show that the hotel group’s after-tax profit fell last year to €5.6 million from €31.1 million in 2015. This was due to the impact of a revaluation of its properties.
Its operating profit from continuing operations reduced to just under €15 million from €52.7 million in 2015.

Murray picks Redbreast

Irish Distillers has been honoured with a top accolade in Jim Murray’s annual Whisky Bible 2018


. Now in its 15th year of publication, the Whisky Bible contains tasting notes for over 4,600 whiskies and whiskeys from all over the world.
Irish Distiller’s Redbreast 21 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey was named the world’s second-best whisk(e)y narrowly losing out Colonel EH Taylor 4 Grain Bottled in Bond Aged 12 Years. 
Scoring a near perfect 97/100, Murray, a world-renowned whisky and whiskey expert, described t
he Redbreast 21 as “one of the most wonderful noses on this planet” which helps make it “one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic whiskeys”. This placement is the best result for an Irish entrant in Whisky Bible history and only the second time an Irish whiskey made the top three, the first time was in the 2016 Bible when Irish Distillers’ Midleton Dair Ghaelach placed third.
