The company announced today that Romano Beverage will handle all distribution in Illinois.
“Building on more than a century of history in the industry, the Romano family continues its tradition of excellence and, as curators of fine wine and spirits, is committed to building brands and providing high quality products to selective retailers and outlets in Illinois,” the company says. “The Connacht Whiskey Company is excited to be one of Romano’s first spirit suppliers.”
The Connacht Whiskey Company is located in Ballina, County Mayo, on the banks of the River Moy, 2 ½ hours west of Dublin and only a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
