Diageo has put the David Beckham-backed Haig Club Scotch whisky on full release in the UK ahead of a launch in Asia and the US.

The company said today the single-grain Scotch is now available in the UK's  off- and on-trade, priced at GBP45 (US$72) per 70cl bottle. Haig Club will go on sale in China, South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and the US “in the next few weeks” with other markets to follow.

The whisky was rolled out in the UK in July with the support of Beckham and British media mogul Simon Fuller and was available for a limited time in Singapore's Changi airport last month.
