Hi Style is one of Ireland’s leading platforms for beauty, fashion and hospitality and is always championing small businesses and positivity of people.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Mary Jane O’ Regan, CEO of Hi Style said “We are delighted on our tenth anniversary to launch Ireland’s Most Stylish Business Awards 2023 in association with Ireland’s Most Stylish Liquor – Cointreau. The response with nominations has been incredible and we have been receiving them from all over Ireland. We want to recognise a variety of business types for their passion and vigour in making Ireland such an incredible destination for fashion , entrepreneurship, food, hospitality, style and so much more. As a nation, we have style in our soul and we see this regularly in our events. Irish people love a party! Who better to party with than Cointreau, the must have spirit for The Original Margarita cocktail or for other classic cocktails including the Cosmopolitan, Sidecar and White Lady.”
Kate Barry, Brand Manager for Cointreau at Barry & Fitzwilliam said “We have a long association with Hi Style and are thrilled to see the launch of this unique national event to recognise Ireland’s Most Stylish Businesses. There are stylish businesses in every part of our beautiful country, and just like Cointreau as the original spirit for stylish cocktails, it is now a household name nationwide with the Margarita cocktail leading the way.”
Ireland’s Most Stylish Business Awards 2023 will take place to a capacity guest list on Saturday November 4th in the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs. The dynamic duo compering are Deric Hartigan from Virgin Media and Amanda Brunker, Author and Media Personality. Featuring at the drinks reception will be the new reimagined Cointreau bottle. Like the crystalline orange liqueur housed within it, the Cointreau L’Unique bottle has always stood in a category of its own. The original bottle subverted the conventions of its time, embracing square edges and amber glass— the hallmarks of its silhouette today.
Made of two-thirds recycled glass, this new version retains the essentials while honouring modern French elegance, from its label to its shape. On the aesthetic side, the new Cointreau L’Unique bottle underlines the product at the heart of the liqueur, the orange, illustrated on the bottle for the first time. Also, Cointreau’s original distillery, depicted both on the label and in the engraving, a tribute to Cointreau’s roots. But the bottle sees ergonomic enhancements too: the shape has been lengthened for ease of pouring without increasing its weight, a major technical challenge. The new bottle also features a QR code for the first time, which grants instant access to a dedicated online experience on cointreau.com, the go-to source for nearly 400 drink recipes and cocktail tips. The gala ceremony will include a delicious three course meal , entertainment with beautiful wines from Barry and Fitzwilliam and a night of awards, entertainment and incredible fun.
