Diageo GB has announced the addition of a new whisky to its portfolio. J&B -6ºc will hit the UK market this summer, and will debut in premium bars and stores.

J&B -6ºc is lighter in colour as only naturally light, high quality malts and grains are selected. A high proportion of malts are blended with the grain whiskies to make the new beverage.

The new whisky will be packaged in a linear-edged bottle with minimal labelling. Recommended retail price has been set at £17.99 for a 70cl bottle.
