Brian to launch Briantini cocktail 04.03.21

THE Muff Liquor Company is teaming up with Big Brother’s housemate Brian Dowling Gourounlian to launch the ‘Briantini’ range of cocktails. The first cocktail will go on sale tomorrow, Friday 5th March, at 9pm after Brian unveils the first ‘Briantini’ on Instagram ( @bprdowling & @muffliquorco ) and on Facebook at 8pm.
This collaboration will see the media presenter, once voted Irelands Most Stylish Man, launching range of Muff vodka themed cocktails in time for St Patrick’s Day.
The Muff Liquor Company was founded in 2017 and is the brain child of local entrepreneur Laura Bonner and her business partner Tom Russell. Inspired by Laura’s grandfathers recipes of poitin, Laura and Tom established the premium potato based craft spirits company in the border village of Muff.

Brian said “Anyone who knows or follows me knows that I love a good cocktail. I am a big fan of The Muff Liquor Company’s craft potato vodka and gin products – they are just delicious. I adore the brand and what Laura and the team have created up in Donegal. And naturally, every time I hear the name I have a little chuckle to myself! I have been asked a number of times to collaborate with brands and this is one I wanted to do from the get go – because let’s be honest who doesn’t love a cocktail?”.
The Covid lockdown spent with his husband Arthur in Kildare has allowed Brian the time to carry out some research into cocktail making. “I was totally dedicated to the process” says Brian with his tongue firmly in his cheek and his dream is now a reality. “What the last year has taught me is to take each and every opportunity that comes my way if I feel its me. And it doesn’t get more me than a cocktail called after me!”
Inishowen based co-owner of The Muff Liquor Company, Laura Bonner is hugely excited about the partnership with Brian Dowling Gourounlian and says cocktail lovers in Ireland are in for a real treat with the ‘Briantini’. “We have had so much fun working with Brian. He is a fantastic person, full of enthusiasm and energy. He really adores our vodka and gin products and is very positive about our brand and what we stand for. Brian is very supportive of small Irish businesses and we are delighted to be collaborating with him on this exciting adventure. Lockdown has been tough for everyone and we believe the ‘Briantini’s’ will really hit the spot for those looking to enjoy some tasty sophistication delivered to their door for St Patrick’s Day.”
The Briantini Box will be dispatched in a beautifully designed navy and gold package that will include a menu card, a personal message from Brian, and the luxurious ingredients of Muff vodka and fruity ingredients and mixers to make your delicious ‘Briantini’.
Priced at €39.50 they can be delivered across Ireland and ordered via The Muff Liquor company website or email .
