Tullibardine, which is based in Perthshire, has secured a deal to supply its new Highland Single Malt Sherry Finish Whisky. This new product will be shelved across 50 outlets in Scotland.

Valt Vodka’s single malt Scottish vodka will be stocked in 40 stores. This drink, which is produced by Strathleven Distillers, makes use of Scottish malted barley, reported the Spirits Business.

"We have been crafting the gin renaissance from our distillery in Scotland’s capital since 2010."

Spencerfield Spirit Company-produced Edinburgh Gin, as well as Edinburgh Rhubarb and Ginger Gin Liqueur, will be available at 55 outlets.

"By launching equally sophisticated spirits such as Tullibardine, Valt and Edinburgh Gin in Asda stores across Scotland, it will now mean that more consumers than ever before can enjoy a truly Scottish drinking experience."

Edinburgh Gin co-founder Alex Nicol was quoted by bqlive.co.uk saying: "The gin and spirits industry has seen significant growth which we have experienced for ourselves at Edinburgh Gin.
