William Grant & Sons is rolling out its 12-year-old Tullamore Dew variant in the UK.

The Irish whiskey, which is widely available in other markets around the world, will roll out in the UK later this month. With a RRP of GBP29.45 (US$46) per 70cl bottle in the off-trade, the variant will target the premium end of the country's spirits market. Distribution will be handled by William Grant's UK sales and distribution unit, First Drinks.

“We have exciting plans to grow the brand in the UK,” said Tom Wade, senior brand manager for Tullamore Dew at First Drinks. “We hope to really establish the brand across both the on- and off-trade, particularly in the more premium sector and with the whiskey connoisseur.”

Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a blend of three types of triple distilled Irish whiskey aged between 12 and 15 years. Maturation takes place in ex-Bourbon and Olorosso Sherry casks.

William Grant acquired Tullamore Dew from C&C Group in July last year.
