Tullamore Dew's distribution will switch to Remy Cointreau in September

William Grant & Sons is set to switch the distribution of its Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey brand in Czech and Slovakia from Stock Spirits to Remy Cointreau.

Stock's Czech unit, Stock Plzen, will hand over the distribution rights, which it has held for ten years, in September, the company said earlier this week. Remy Cointreau will also be responsible for all of William Grant's brands in the two countries.

Stock Spirits, which acquired Stock Plzen in 2007, started distributing Tullamore Dew in Czech in 2004, with the brand becoming the most popular Irish whiskey in the country within four years.

Tullamore Dew currently accounts for almost 30% of the total whisk(e)y market in Czech.

William Grant acquired Tullamore Dew from C&C Group in 2010.
