Dunville’s Irish Whiskey has been announced at a 2021/22 sponsor for Lisburn Distillery Football Club.
This is the sixth season that Dunville’s has sponsored the team, after The Echlinville Distillery rekindled a historic relationship between Dunville’s Whiskey and Distillery FC.
Shane Braniff said: “We are delighted to continue to support Lisburn Distillery Football Club in the 2021/22 season. As proud custodians of the Dunville’s Irish Whiskey, we are proud to continue the relationship between Dunville’s and Distillery FC – a relationship that dates back to the club’s foundation 140 years ago by Dunville’s Whiskey employees.
“As we look forward to expanding the Dunville’s portfolio over the coming months, the season ahead is looking bright for Dunville’s Whiskey and, we hope too, for Lisburn Distillery FC. We wish everyone at the club the best of luck in the season ahead.”
Lisburn Distillery director Terry Thompson said: “I am delighted that a truly unique historical link carries on today and for the season ahead. Last year I wrote that Echlinville and Dunville’s would go on to win more awards and a huge ‘Well Done’ to everyone on their recent successes and awards in California and Tokyo.
“We have all been very pleased, appreciative, and genuinely proud to have Dunvile’s Whiskey as our back-of-shirt sponsor. I am very pleased again on behalf of everyone here at the club to sincerely thank owner Shane Braniff and the team at Echlinville for their backing for the season ahead. It’s great that The Spirit of Belfast is very much with us.”
