Five Farms is the world’s first farm-to-table Irish Cream Liqueur. It is crafted from single batches of fresh cream that are combined with premium Irish Whiskey within 48 hours of collection to become authentic Irish Cream Liqueur. The cream is sourced entirely from five family-owned farms in County Cork, Ireland run by families that have a deep connection to the land and a passion for their craft.  The cream is bottled in old style black glass milk bottles with a swing top capsule.

Barry Geoghegan, Founder of Duty Free Global commented, “These are fantastic brands that we are very excited to bring to travel retail.  Five Farms has such great provenance from Cork with fantastic packaging that we feel will attract new buyers to the cream category.  Broker’s Gin is so well regarded with more top awards in international competitions over the last ten years than any other gin.  It is a seriously good gin that really stands out on shelf with its black bowler hat!

Patrick Fee, Vice President of Marketing for McCormick Distilling Company, “We look forward to working closely with the Duty Free Global team in building the exposure of Five Farms and Broker’s Gin in the travel retail sector.”
