Tullamore Dew 14- and 18-year olds will roll out as limited releases from September. The 14-year-old carries an SRP of US$69.99, while the 18 year old expression carries an SRP of US$109.99. 

"There is a growing appetite for single malts in the US market, and we're looking forward to showing consumers how much Ireland and Tullamore Dew has to offer in this category," said Paige Parness, US senior brand manager for Tullamore Dew.

The whiskies are both finished in four casks - Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry, Port and Madeira. 

Last September, William Grant confirmed plans to double production capacity at the Tullamore Dew distillery. The new capacity of 3.6m litres was due to come into effect from January.

The US continues to be a major market for Irish whiskey producers. In a conference call earlier this year, Pernod Ricard said of category leader Jameson that growth in the US was "coming from everywhere".
