Walsh Whiskey names Paragon Brands UK distributor

Walsh Whiskey Distillery has appointed Paragon Brands as the UK distributor for its portfolio of Irish whiskeys.

Paragon Brands will distribute The Irishman and Writers’ Tears in the UK

Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s range, which includes Writers’ Tears and The Irishman expressions, will now be distributed by UK-based importer Paragon Brands.

John Kelly, commercial director of Walsh Whiskey Distillery, said: “We are really excited about developing our small-batch, craft whiskeys in the UK in partnership with Paragon Brands.

“It is a priority market for us and one where we see a significant opportunity for growth. This distribution partnership with Paragon Brands will allow us to unlock that opportunity.”

Writers’ Tears and The Irishman Irish whiskeys are available in 45 markets worldwide.

Chris Jones, managing director of Paragon Brands, said: “With Irish whiskey set to become the next big growth category in international spirits, the range of Writers’ Tears and The Irishman whiskeys are perfectly placed to meet the demand for high quality Irish single pot and single malt whiskeys.

“Both Paragon and Walsh Whiskey share a passion for premium craft whiskey and the quality of whiskey produced by Walsh Whiskey is exceptional.”

Earlier this year, the Irish whiskey producer signed a €4 million (US$4.89m) Canadian distribution deal with Woodman Wines & Spirits.
