William Grant & Sons is considering building a distillery in Ireland for Tullamore Dew as it takes over the brand's distribution in Australia.
Suntory Australia officially handed local distribution over to William Grant & Sons Australia earlier this month (February).
Tullamore Dew had been distributed within Australia by Suntory Australia for the past ten years.
Last year William Grant & Sons announced the global purchase of Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey from C&C International.
While the drinks company is still examining the logistics of how the whiskey brand will fit into its global portfolio, it is believed that a Tullamore Dew distillery will be built in Ireland in due course.
The whiskey is currently produced under contract by Pernod Ricard’s Irish Distillers and bottling is managed by William Grant & Sons in Ireland.
Should you have any questions, or require any further information on the distribution of Tullamore Dew in Australia, please contact William Grant & Sons Australia on (02) 9409 5105.
