Mangrove is partnering with Irish whiskey producer Kinahan’s to launch the UK distribution of its latest expressions.

Kinahan’s, which was originally founded in 1779, will initially be available in two varieties: a premium Small Batch blend and an ultra-premium Single Malt.

Zak Oganian, Kinahan’s managing director said: “It is with great pleasure that we are partnering with Mangrove to bring Kinahan’s Whiskey back to the UK. We are immensely proud of the provenance of our company and it is on the basis of this strong foundation that we continue to create Whiskeys with the rich, smooth and full character that Kinahan’s has always been known for.”

Nick Gillett, managing director of Mangrove said: "I am delighted to add Kinahan’s to the portfolio. The Whiskey is amazing and with its rich history and heritage, it fits fantastically well into our portfolio. We believe that the Irish Whiskey category is very exciting and offers great potential and Kinahan’s will fulfil a great role in expanding this category.”
