Thursday April 26th. Cheers Wine & Spirits welcomes two very special guests. Kieran Folliard, and his Two Gingers Irish Whiskey will visit both Cheers locations.

 

Kieran will be at Cheers Chanahssen from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. and Cheers Bloomington from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We’ll have plenty of two Gingers on hand for you to sample, and if you purchase a bottle (or four) Kieran will autograph them. So please mark your calendars and plan to stop by Cheers on the 26th and meet two Irish legends!

 

 

 

Born in 1955 in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo in the West of Ireland, Kieran started out in the hospitality industry carrying the bags for the passengers in his father’s Hackney (taxi cab) business.  After 17 years spent in corporate marketing including time in Ireland, Saudi Arabia and the U.S, he realized that he loved being in pubs.  So, like any good self-respecting Irish guy, he decided to open one.
18 years later, the pub business had grown to include The Local, The Liffey, Cooper, and Kieran’s Irish Pub.  He attributes their growth to the strong team of individuals, a number of whom became partners in the business as of 2010. Now the very same management team and previous business partner have 100% ownership, as he had another idea to chip away at… and federal regulations prohibit doing both at once.
In March of 2011, 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey was launched. The trademarked drink The Big Ginger® would become the portal to the new passion. Achieving the title for selling the most Irish whiskey in the world at a single establishment, Kieran’s leadership would spotlight this drink further and hone his dream in on the new whiskey. After a well-received introduction, the product has drawn inquiries, which lead to a strategic decision to pursue a wider distribution of the whiskey brand.
This whiskey has become Kieran’s full time passion, recently renting a small office in Northeast Minneapolis and hiring a small staff of 4. He wrangles federal regulations and visits the relationships he’d developed over the years in the community and in the pub and restaurant business with momentous efforts to create demand in time for the product’s arrival to liquor stores, and pubs/restaurants in Minnesota.
Imported directly from Cooley Distillery, the last independent distillery in Ireland, the first 1,000 cases of the new whiskey  arriveed in the united States in November 2011 Cheers Wine & Spirits added it too their inventory immediately and It's has been a hot seller ever since!
