Let’s start with the drinks reception. The Clayton Hotel Silver Springs showcased a wide variety of aperitifs before the wonderful meal, including delightful Champagne, seductive Tia Maria and a fantastic selection of rich, perfectly crafted, speciality beer provided by The Rising Sons Brewery, as some Cork folk might say it, it was Mi Daza.

The array of choice and quality could only be described as perfection. Great fun and greetings between both Cork business owners and guests created a wonderful atmosphere on the evening. Members of the Cork City Council, The Marketing Institute of Ireland and the Cork Chamber of Commerce mixed and mingled while discussing the development and very bright future of Cork city, we at Alpes d’Or are delighted to be a part of Corks bright future and look forward to bringing our luxurious selection to our Cork Chocolate connoisseurs. Not long after this, it was time for the moment we had all been waiting for, the most anticipated part of the night. It was time for the evening meal and the Cork Business Awards 2019.
