The Sexton single malt Irish whiskey, which first launched to the US last year, rolled out to the UK this month. At the time of the launch, the company told just-drinks the product is made at Cuervo's Bushmills distillery in County Antrim. 

The whiskey, which does not carry an age statement, is matured in ex-Oloroso sherry butts. 

"It's fantastic to bring The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey to the UK during such an exciting time for the category," said master blender Alex Thomas. "After years of experimenting with different cask profiles and laying the liquid to rest for just the right amount of time, I'm pleased to share [an]... Irish single malt that is ideal for mixing in cocktails."

The term 'sexton' is derived from the Latin sacristanus – meaning custodian of sacred objects, the company said. 

The Sexton is available in "high-end bars, restaurants and lounges as well as fine wine & spirits shops". The product carries an SRP of GBP29.99 (US$38.50).
