Royal Oak, Carlow, Ireland – 02 February, 2017: Walsh Whiskey Distillery is delighted to announce that Marks & Spencer have added more of its whiskeys to its premium spirits portfolio with the addition of both The Irishman – Founder’s Reserve and Writers’ Tears – Red Head. The multinational retailer has listed Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot in all of its 625 stores since 2013.
The multi award-winning The Irishman – Founder’s Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish Pot Still Whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by Walsh Whiskey Distillery founder Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of 70% Single Malt and 30% Single Pot Still.
The Writers’ Tears – Red Head, first released in August 2016, is an exquisite triple-distilled, single malt, aged in sherry butts seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry, giving it a distinct, rich, ruby red hue.
Commenting on the expansion of its listing with Marks & Spencer, Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s Senior Global Sales Manager, Shane Fitzharris, said: “Following on from the successful listing of Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot, we are delighted to be increasing the listing of Walsh Whiskey Distillery brands across the Marks & Spencer network of premium stores. We look forward to growing the interest of their, very significant, customer base in both our whiskeys and our distillery in the years ahead.”
