The Echlinville Distillery is celebrating Belfast Whiskey Week with the launch of the second Cask Strength release of its iconic Dunville’s PX 12 Year Old Single Malt.

Dunville’s PX 12 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Irish Whiskey is finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Cask 1326 is bottled at 57% abv and limited to just 310 bottles. It will be available from The Echlinville Distillery online shop at online at from 9am on Saturday 1st August, priced at £112.

News of the release comes as Dunville’s, ‘The Spirit of Belfast’, introduced its latest addition, alongside some as yet unreleased whiskeys, during a series of tastings for Belfast Whiskey Week.

Dunville’s brand ambassador Jarlath Watson said: “This is the second Cask Strength expression of our award winning 12 Year Old PX whiskey, the first cask strength bottling sold out within a few hours of its release in February 2020.

"This second release is right up there with our first one, perhaps even better. The intensity of those candied citrus sweets, apple strudel, crème brulée, dark stone fruits and Christmas spices is immense, yet this whiskey is magnificently poised, with those PX oak cask influences perfectly balanced against the higher cask strength alcohol content.

“Dunville’s is the ‘Spirit of Belfast’ and we are delighted to introduce this release during Belfast Whiskey Week, which has seen the Irish whiskey family come together like never before for an online celebration of the best of Irish and world whiskeys.

“Belfast was once at the heart of Ireland’s whiskey industry, so it’s fitting that Belfast Whiskey Week should bring the focus of the Irish whiskey community back to a city whose association with the spirit has been somewhat forgotten over the years.

“By the end of the 19th century, Ireland was producing around 14 million gallons of whiskey per year. A disproportionate amount of that was distilled in Belfast, and much of that by Dunville’s.

“Founded in Belfast in 1808, Dunville’s quickly became one of the world’s most famous whiskeys. Dunville’s employed hundreds of people, constructed housing for their workers on the aptly named Excise Street, Distillery Street and Dunville Street, built Belfast’s first public park - Dunville Park on the Falls Road - and even founded a football club, Distillery FC, which we are proud to still have links with today.

“Dunville’s legacy can be found throughout Belfast. This is our whiskey and our city, so we are proud to celebrate Belfast Whiskey Week by unveiling the latest release from our Single Cask Series, which showcases the very best whiskeys from the Dunville’s warehouses.

“When we revived the Dunville’s Whiskey brand in 2012 we did so with the promise not to compromise in our desire to produce the finest whiskeys conceivable. The Single Cask Series is the embodiment of that ethos and has been very well received within the Irish Whiskey community. We hope PX Cask 1326 will be met with the same enthusiasm.

“We firmly believe this release, and those to follow in the coming months, will further enhance Dunville’s reputation and help us put this city and The Spirit of Belfast firmly back on the world whiskey map.”

Yoso introduces YOATS - a creamy, delicious and nutritious oat yogurt - as the latest invention in its 20 year history of bringing plant-based products to Canada’s yogurt category. Yoso was a pioneer in soy-based foods, and the first to introduce unsweetened coconut and almond & cashew yogurts, a staple on grocery shelves today. With the introduction of YOATS, it once again forges new territory by tapping into the tremendous potentialof oats.

YOATS meets the market’s increasing demand for plant-based, wholesome foods packed with protein and nutrients; all three flavours of YOATS are also unsweetened, addressing the demand for no added sugar; and oats are an exciting new ingredient because they are a nutritional powerhouse as well as a success story in Canadian agriculture.

“YOATS is the 4th product category we are introducing to the Canadian market since my brother, Erik, and I started Yoso in 1999,” explains Francis Lo, Co-Founder of Yoso. “There’s a rich history of plant-based food innovation in our family going back to our grandfather commercializing soy milk in China in 1940. We see it as our responsibility and our life’s work to continue this spirit of innovation bringing wholesome, delicious options to Canadians.”

Yoats will be available in more than 150 of the close to 2,000 stores across Canada where you can purchase Yoso

As part of the #RestartMB program, the Manitoba government is seeking feedback from the public to further ease restrictions to public health orders as the province continues to restart the economy and plan for a strong economic recovery, Premier Brian Pallister announced today.

“Thanks to the efforts of all Manitobans, we continue to lead in recovery and have among the lowest COVID-19 test positivity rates in the country,” said Pallister. “That means we can continue our careful, balanced plan to restart our economy, give people back their lives and get Manitobans back to work.”

The draft plan for Phase Four of reopening the Manitoba economy is based on public health advice and consultation with key sectors. Proposed measures could be implemented as early as July 25 and those measures include:

• increasing gathering sizes to 75 people indoors and 250 outdoors, where members of the public are reasonably able to maintain a separation of at least two metres from others, except for brief exchanges. Larger group sizes would be allowed where distinct groups of 75 or 250 can be separated to prevent contact with other groups.

• increasing visitation at personal care and long-term care facilities, ensuring a balanced approach to visitation is required which mitigates the risk of COVID-19 transmission within sites. Each resident or designate would be able to identify two support people who would be able to visit the resident’s room indoors. Outdoor visits would be allowed for a reasonable number of visitors (up to four people) per resident, depending on availability of space. Each site will need to develop specific plans for enabling outdoor/indoor visitation by visitors to ensure the safety of residents within the facilities.

• adjusting restrictions for faith-based gatherings, pow wows and other cultural and spiritual events, as well as resuming live theatrical performances and movie theatres. No cohorts will be required and capacity will increase to 50 per cent of the site’s capacity or 500 people, whichever is lower. Adequate physical distancing between individuals and households must continue to be provided.

• opening casinos, with a maximum occupancy of 50 per cent of the site’s capacity. Physical distancing, and frequent and enhanced cleaning and wiping of surfaces are required.

• lifting occupancy restrictions in all retail settings and indoor recreation sites except for gyms, fitness centres, martial arts, gymnastic clubs and yoga studios. These sites must remain at occupancy levels of 50 per cent or one person per 10 square metres, whichever is lower.

• allowing closer distancing at therapeutic health businesses and personal service businesses such as hair and nail salons where a non-permeable barrier is installed.

• allowing counter walk-up service in bars, beverage rooms and brew pubs provided non-permeable barriers and hand sanitizer is available for patrons, along with more frequent cleaning and wiping of services.

The province is also considering removing the 14-day, self-isolation travel restriction for domestic travel within Canada, the premier noted.

“Manitoba is one of the safest places in the world to go back to work and get back up on your feet,” said Pallister. “We must maintain our vigilance while growing our way out of this pandemic. I encourage all Manitobans to have their say in our next steps of restarting our economy.”

Manitobans are encouraged to fill out the survey at and will also have the opportunity to participate in a telephone town hall tomorrow. Detailed information on the updates, including service restoration, measures the public can take to reduce their risk of COVIC-19 exposure or spreading the virus, and workplace guidance for businesses, can be found at
