Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell is pictured with Bernard Sloan and Howard Hastings at the launch of ‘Maggies Leap’, the latest craft beer to emerge from the Whitewater Brewing Co. Limited stable.
Craft beers from the Kilkeel-based brewery are being showcased by the Hastings Hotels Group as part of its drive to promote locally produced food and drink.
Jonathan Bell said: “Northern Ireland is famous for its excellent food and drink, and products from the Whitewater Brewery are already proving popular in the export markets.
“2016 is Northern Ireland’s Year of Food and I have no doubt that the excellent reputation already established by Whitewater’s award winning products will be further enhanced by this latest addition to its range.”
‘Maggies Leap’ was launched at the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa. Speaking at the launch, Howard Hastings said: “Hastings hotels are proud to be working with Bernard Sloan and his Whitewater Brewery as part of our philosophy of showcasing the best of local food and drink from Northern Ireland.”
