The week in pictures

Two whiskies, both alike in dignity. In UK retail we lay our scene….

St Patrick’s Day is around the corner, and Irish whiskey brands are racing to secure listings in the UK off-trade. On Thursday, we broke the news that MMA fighter and PR director’s dream Conor McGregor (pictured) is bringing his Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey to the UK after selling out during its initial launch in Ireland and the US last year. It has gained a listing in ASDA stores, and is also available online.

Now, Slane Irish Whiskey is taking its signature Triple Casked blend across the Irish Sea. The spirit, which picked up a gold in The Spirits Business’ whiskey masters last year, will be available in 306 Waitrose stores and 300 Asda outlets, as well as Ocado, just in time for 17 March.
