Lambay Irish Whiskey Co was set up last year through a collaboration with Cognac house Camus and the Revelstoke Trust, which owns the Irish island the whiskey is made on. The two expressions - a small batch blend and a single malt - are both finished in Camus Cognac casks.

Today, Camus announced that the products will roll out in the UK through drinks agency Tortuga Brands.

"The UK market is one of our key markets for Lambay Irish Whiskey Co," said LIWC managing director Jean-David Costerg. "In a fast-growing Irish whiskey category, consumers today are looking for genuine and premium products, that are special and created in small batches, with a sense of history and tradition."

The LIWC was founded in February 2017 and is based on Lambay, an island in the Irish Sea off the coast of north County Dublin. The whiskey is made with Trinity Well water from Lambay and finished in French oak Cognac casks from Camus's cellars.

LIWC's whiskeys launched in the US, France, Germany and Ireland in spring 2018 and will be in over 25 markets by the end of the year, the company told just-drinks.
