Limerick’s milestone grapes are: Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Grenache.
Despite your differences in grapes and wines, there is a common winemaker, however, that is loved in both shops - J. Mourat Vineyards
Besides loving the same winemaker there is, in fact, a common denominator in wine that we all need to raise a glass to … there’s a clue there …
over 1000 bottles sold online and instore
Cavavin Ireland couldn’t agree more with your choice of sparkles! Crémant really is the best sparkling wine.
Limerick has set some new milestones upstairs at the Wine Bar. On social media, the opening night/big reveal reel of Limerick’s newest winebar received our highest number of impressions and was your favourite piece of content to date.
The bar has poured over 1500 glasses of wine since opening.

Whiskey milestones
Before we talk numbers can we just remind you that we have introduced the largest and most exclusive range of Japanese and International whiskies to Ireland. Names and brands not yet known widely in Ireland, but that have been setting trends and turning heads globally with whisky connoisseurs - [Japanese Whiskeys
But, that being said, we are always #proudtobeirish and love to #supportlocal and it shows in the numbers.

Cavavin is proud to promote artisan local Irish whiskies and we will continue to grow this exceptional range of local whiskies.
We have to mention our first whiskey tasting experience that took place in November and was a roaring success. The echoes of the evening and potent aromas can still be felt in the walls of the bar! Be sure to catch our first tasting of 2024 on March 30th - book here.

Events Milestones
Both Galway and Limerick have something in common here - you all love to get together, experience good wine, and have a good night out. We had a record number of SOLD OUT events at both shops this year. We sold over 500 tickets between Galway and Limerick.
The cacophony of laughter, clinking of glasses, is infectious on these nights. Don’t miss out, be a part of it in 2024. [2024 Events]

The Sheridan Show
No wine show is complete without cheese. The cheese that melted everyone’s heart was …
            Smoked Gubbeen
You all loved the Sheridan’s Show reel and competition we posted about on Instagram. It was one of your top content moments!
Over 500 cheese boards were freshly prepared by our cheese specialist for you all to enjoy either at the bar or at home.
There is no doubting Limerick’s LOVE for all things cheese. So next time you stop by to pick up the best selling Smoked Gubbeen, Louise suggests trying it with a glass of Primitivo. It’s a match made in heaven!
Q: Who is the cracker to my cheese?
A: Tim’s Table Lavosh crackers from Limerick of course! Over 150 of these were sold in both Limerick and Galway.
No cheese and cracker is complete without chutney and you all know that too well. We love Filligan’s here at Cavavin; over 500 jars of Filligan’s award-winning and handmade artisan jams and chutneys from Donegal were sold in both Limerick and Galway. 
To finish, Limerick is nuts about nuts - Sheridan’s Valencia almonds to be specific. Boxes upon boxes of these were sold. And with all salty treats must follow sweet delights … Munster’s Dessert First tray bakes and scones make for the perfect pick me up or afternoon treat.
Every show has a backstage team that keeps the show on the road. As a small business, our backstage team is the same as our Front of House team but so many hours and milestones continue to be set here thanks to you.
We signed up over 1200 new subscribers (that we know of!)
We reached over 2k followers on Instagram
and 179 reviews came from you on Trustpilot (4.8 Rating - 96% 5 Star)
And we had a few VIP’s visit and tag us on social media
What has fuelled this great journey I hear you ask? Where has all this energy come from?
… Eleven14 coffee from Munster legend Keith Earls (of course!)
Over 4500 cups have been enjoyed
With the biscuit of choice being a Tunnock Tea Cake!
An additional 360+ coffees fuelled our lovely, bubbly, and energetic staff so that they're always energised to greet and serve you.
