Three generations of providing Wines, Spirits and Craft Beers
We take pride in continuing our strong tradition and bringing it online
Callan’s was first opened in 1941 as a Bar Grocer. We bottled our own stout and whiskey for many years. Guinness was conditioned in the bar as it was warmer. The Off Licence grew out of the Grocery as Supermarkets era began in the sixties. Late seventies and early eighties the Irish Bar grocer came to an end as Supermarkets dominated the shopping trend in Ireland. Callan’s develop a full Off Licence in the early eighties.
The bar and lounge still play a significant part of the business. Mid-Nineties Callan’s extend the off licence and double its size. Callan’s start making Christmas hamper’s 1997. 2001 Callan’s win Leinster Off Licence of the year, putting them in the top five off licence in the country Callan’s close their lounge bar in 2007 to focus solely on becoming a specialist off licence as the supermarkets begin their below cost selling of alcohol.
Callan’s begin dabbling in on line retailing under the www.callanswines.com in 2004. Premium Craft Gin takes hold of the Irish Market in 2015/2016. Craft Beer growth see Callan’s take in 350 premium beers in 2014
