The Irish Whiskey Awards went down on October 15th in Ireland. One of the awards they hand out is the “Best Irish Whiskey Bar Outside of Ireland” and the Gold winner (which is a fancy way of saying runner-up) went to Vancouver’s Irish Heather on Carrall Street. Mmmm I like Whiskey. Their twitter reads: “Irish Owned – Irish Managed – No Green Beer – No Leprechauns!!!” Three exclamation points means business.
In an email to VancityBuzz the owner of the bar Sean Heather said, “It is always great to be recognized, but it’s also very special to be recognized by your own people – especially when you are thousands of miles away. ”
