The supplier said it is best served neat or with soda water as part of a highball cocktail, and has an RRP of £18.

Nick Ganich, head of Beam Suntory brands at Edrington-Beam Suntory UK, said the new addition aims to also attract new consumers to the brand, “with the opportunity to drive peach-flavoured whiskey share growth within the category and become the market leader.”
