New markets, products and distilleries are all driving growth for craft beer and spirit companies in Ireland.

More than 30 Irish gin brands are now on the market, and exports more than trebled last year, according to the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland.

Since 2014, the number of homegrown whiskey distilleries has risen from four to 18, with 18 more planned. Beer is also experiencing a boom, with 100 microbreweries now in Ireland.
