A drinks business from Donabate is this year’s winner of the Fingal Enterprise Award for 2019. Cult Drinks took the top prize of €5,000 and will now represent Local Enterprise Office Fingal at the 21st National Enterprise Awards on Wednesday 29th May in the Mansion House in Dublin.

Judging is taking place in April and May and Cult Drinks will be competing against 30 other finalists from every local authority area for a share of the National €40,000 prize fund. Categories this year include ‘Best Export Business,’ ‘Best Start Up Business’ and ‘Innovation,’ in addition to eight regional awards.

Employing ten staff from its base in Donabate, Cult Drinks has successfully launched and built a diversified portfolio of brands in both the domestic, UK and global markets. There were two runners-up at the Fingal Enterprise Awards held at County hall in Swords: Busterbox from Ballycoolin (a subscription service for dog owners) and Peptalk of Lucan (a technology platform for employees to improve wellbeing). Each runner-up receives an investment of €2,000 in their business, while the other seven finalists receive €1,000.

Oisin Geoghegan Head of Fingal Local Enterprise Office, said: “Cult Drinks has already become a success story and the judges were particularly impressed by the year-on-year success of this business.
