Gillian Murphy


A native of Cork, Ireland (the “real capital” as locals refer to it), Gillian Murphy is the U.S. Ambassador for Tullamore D.E.W. Gillian studied at the University College Cork where she fully immersed herself in the rich traditions of her home country, including taking all her classes in Gaelic, the traditional Irish language. It was during this time when she discovered Tullamore D.E.W. Irish whiskey and developed a passion for the cocktail and spirits industry.

Upon graduation, Gillian got the opportunity of a life time to join the brand ambassador trainee program with Tullamore D.E.W. in the U.S. She packed her bags and moved to South Florida to immerse herself in the world of Irish whiskey, and develop her skills as a local ambassador, driving brand awareness and sales across the state. A year and a half later, Gillian left the U.S. and moved to London to expand her sales career with William Grant in the Global Travel Retail department.

In 2018, Gillian moved back stateside to Chicago, where she currently resides full time as the Tullamore D.E.W. Ambassador. She is responsible for engaging directly with consumers, media and the trade, educating all about the exciting world of Tullamore D.E.W.
