A Sip to Remember – Upgrade Your Night Out in Dublin City With These New Top Shelf Spirits

Looking for the perfect way to treat yourself in Dublin? Look no further than The Morrison on Dublin’s Ormand Quay. This 4-star venue has just launched a fantastic new spirits menu and this is one that you’ll definitely want to try out.

The new menu features a carefully curated collection across vodka, gin, cognac, rum, tequila, American whiskey, Irish whiskey, Taiwanese whiskey and Scotch.

The spirits are priced from €12 for a shot of Taiga Shtof Siberian Vodka to €160 for 35mls of Remy Louis XIII, so you have plenty of choice and a solid price range to choose from.

Presented in a bespoke leather bound cover, ‘The Top Shelf’ concept was inspired by an increasing demand from Morrison diners and drinkers for something special, whether to finish a meal in The Morrison Grill or celebrating a successful day’s business in the Quay 14 bar.

The keen and knowledgeable staff began identifying and gathering suitable spirits and ‘The Top Shelf’ was born, already proving popular in just its first weekend.

Speaking about the new menu, General Manager Patrick Joyce said: “We’re passionate about quality at The Morrison. These are some of the finest spirits available, now available to enjoy in the setting of our newly revamped and very stylish bar Quay 14. Our clientele expects the best, and The Top Shelf delivers that.”

Of the eighteen spirits served, some are exclusive to The Morrison in Dublin, such as the Ballykeefe Small Batch vodka and the Appleton Estate 21 YO rum, and with whiskeys aged up 28 years.

Of particular note are the Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve Oak Rested Gin (€14). Aged in French oak barrels, it has a lovely, gentle gold colour.

The Teelings Vintage Reserve 28 year old (€52) is also not to be missed. Aged entirely in a single rum cask, it was distilled in 1989. Another aged classic is the Redbreast 1997 1st Fill Sherry Cask (€44), this has huge sherry cask richness.

The hotel’s bar and restaurant recently underwent a quarter of a million euro refurbishment and it’s now lighter, brighter and more connected to the beat of its city centre location, making it the perfect place to linger, whether for a meeting, dining or drinking.
