Nestlé Professional (Ireland) helping pubs increase profits.

The popularity of good coffee has taken off like a caffeine-fuelled rocket in the last couple of years. It is for sale everywhere with pop-up coffee shops appearing overnight and new trendy coffee shops opening every day. Given the massive increase in coffee consumption and consumer interest in this versatile bean, the casual dining sector (and Irish pubs especially) have been looking at ways to attract more customers. Finding an easy-to use system that offers a better quality coffee, increases your profits, with minimal investment has always been the challenge though. Today there is great opportunity for publicans to win more trade from coffee-thirsty customers. Some coffee-shops are now selling beer, so why shouldn't the pub sell good coffee? Most pubs are on the same street or within the same vicinity as numerous coffee shops. Why allow hundreds of customers to walk past your [...]

Supplier Spotlight: Naturally Cordial

The Irish soft drinks market has been fairly stagnant for some time with “innovation” being the preserve of the large multinational soft drinks manufacturers. There is only so much colas, lemonades and orangeades that a customer can possibly drink on an alcohol-free night out or with the family for lunch. Thankfully there is now a refreshing Irish range of non-alcohol adult drinks or mixers for mocktails. Check out Naturally Cordial’s range of delicious craft cordials. Made in Wexford, all their cordials are made from Irish soft fruit and organic citrus fruit. Whilst following a traditional recipe that uses only water, fruit, sugar and a tiny amount of citric acid, Naturally Cordial reduced the sugar content by 50% to allow the natural fruit flavours to come to the fore.   Flavours include the Blas na hEireann Finalists Lemon&Raspberry (2014); Wexford Blackcurrant (2015), [...]

Supplier Spotlight: St. Patrick’s Distillery

Our goal is to produce spirits of character, taste and personality. Most of the spirits we consume today are produced from grains, as they contain high levels of easily converted sugars. We have instead chosen potato as the alcohol base for our Vodka and Gins because of its unique natural sweetness, and its amazing versatility. As potato has just 20% available dry starch matter, this makes the process much more expensive, but more than compensates for the extra time and effort with its unique taste, aroma and smoother mouth-feel. Using small batch artisanal methods, we produce a 100% Potato Vodka and a variety of Potato Gins. The added bonus of a grain free distillation is that it's also naturally gluten free. For whiskey lovers and connoisseurs, we also offer St. Patrick's Distillery Oak Aged Irish Whiskey. Distilled, matured, blended and [...]
