McGettigan's DWTC Named 2021 Beverage of the Year

McGettigan's strong Irish heritage recognised with 'The Black Stuff' victory

Dubai, 15th July 2021: The Black Stuff's month-long search for the perfect drink on Instagram culminated in McGettigan's DWTC being crowned the winner in a closely fought final.

The Black Stuff, on Instagram, began a nationwide search at the start of June to find the perfect pint of the fabled "black stuff". The contest pitched 32 of the most popular pubs and bars in the UAE against each other. Each week establishments went head-to-head on an Instagram poll for the consumers to vote for their favorite pour, culminating in victory for McGettigan's.

The Black Stuff has also awarded McGettigan's DWTC the highest rank to date, a 9/10, for their near perfect serving.

McGettigan's, takes an immense amount of pride in their authentic Irish hospitality, including how Ireland's iconic drink is served. The very first McGettigan's Pub was opened in Ireland in the 1960's on Queen Street by company founder, Jim Mcgettigan, and has since gone global with 19 venues across the world.

Cathal Turley, pub manager at McGettigan's DWTC commented of the victory: "One of the most important things for an Irish pub to aim for is the perfect pour. It's steeped in history and if you get it wrong you'll hear about it! Were delighted to be recognized by the punters in the UAE to have served the best in the country: that's what we aim for and hope to continue to supply for you to enjoy for years to come."
