Proximo Spirits has expanded the launch of its Tincup American Whiskey brand to the UK.

The company said an off-trade release, which follows Tincup's debut launch in the US in January, will initially be in selected accounts including Gerry’s, Selfridges and Drinks Supermarket. Tincup will roll out in the grocery channel next year with an SRP of GBP30 (US$49).

It is already available in some on-trade accounts in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, Proximo said.

The 42% abv whiskey is made with a blend of corn, rye and malt. It is aged in American white oak barrels and bottled in Colorado using Rocky Mountain water. 

New Jersey-based Proximo is owned by Mexico's Beckmann family, which also owns the Jose Cuervo Tequila brand.
