The Irish Whiskey Association (IWA), a lobby group representing the Irish whiskey industry, has clashed with the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine (DAFM) after it raised concerns over labelling requirements.

Label guidelines in Irish whiskey has proven to be a controversial issue, with the Irish Distillers Association previously claiming to DAFM that alleged mislabelling is a “threat” to the sector’s credibility. It has pointed out previously that few Irish brands are distilled in places shown on labels.
