Two Stacks Irish Whiskey Land Double Listing with Tesco NI

Congratulations to our member, Two Stacks Irish Whiskey who has announced a new deal with Tesco for two of its best-selling and most innovative products.

In a new partnership, Tesco Northern Ireland will now stock Two Stacks ‘Dram In A Can’ and ‘Double Irish Cream Liqueur’ on shelves across 26 stores including the Newry store.

It marks another milestone for the Newry-based business, which has already sold more than one million cans since coming to market in 2021 with its premium Irish Whiskey in 100ml can.

Founded in 2020 by three friends, Shane McCarthy, Liam Brogan and Donal McLynn, Two Stacks works with some of Ireland’s leading distilleries to select the finest spirit for flavour-forward blended and single malt whiskeys.

As one of the only independent bonders and blenders on the island of Ireland, with a purpose-built 100% solar-powered production warehouse, Two Stacks is breaking boundaries to create innovative and daring whiskey expressions for new and seasoned whiskey drinkers alike.

Spearheading an innovative new way to drink Irish Whiskey, shoppers can now pick up the cult-favourite Dram In A Can, a first-of-its-kind 100ml can of Two Stacks Irish Whiskey that blends the rich heritage of Irish Whiskey with modern convenience.

Designed for ‘on-the-go’ whiskey moments, this sustainably produced can is eight times lighter than a conventional miniature bottle and welcomes shoppers to enjoy the distinct taste of Two Stacks’ award-winning blended or single malt Irish whiskey at an accessible price point.

Their Double Irish Cream Liqueur is the world’s first Irish Cream liqueur to blend four different styles of whiskey, Two Stacks Double Irish Cream Liqueur uses eight times more Irish Whiskey in this handcrafted blend than the market standard.

Created in collaboration with renowned Irish Cream liqueur makers, Robert A. Merry & Co, this luxurious new liqueur offers a delicately balanced flavour and a velvety, rich sip.

Shane McCarthy, Co-Founder of Two Stacks said:

“Two Stacks Irish Whiskey is excited to announce its partnership with Tesco Northern Ireland. Championing quality and accessibility, Tesco is the perfect home for our whiskey creations.”

“Irish whiskey is a notoriously tight-knit category, and we’re excited to welcome new and seasoned whiskey drinkers to a new chapter in enjoying our native spirit. We feel that, as a nation, Irish Whiskey is ours to own and nurture as a craft and making it more accessible with affordable, high-quality products like Dram In A Can is important to us.”

Their ready to go Dram In A Can Single Malt Double Barrel is matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks, with tasting notes of deep oak spice, wild dark fruits and a lingering nutty finish.

The company’s new partnership with the supermarket giant follows a successful four years for the Newry-based business, with Dram In A Can surpassing 1 million cans sold worldwide since its launch in 2021 and several global distribution and travel retail deals underway, including Dubai Duty Free, Woolworths in Australia and Whole Foods in the US.

Michael Crealey, Buying Manager at Tesco NI commented:

“We’re thrilled to have Two Stacks Irish Whiskey products on Tesco shelves across Northern Ireland. Crafted with passion and precision, these locally produced, award-winning Irish Whiskeys offer Tesco customers an exciting new tasting experience at the right price.”

“With Two Stacks Dram In A Can, we’re helping to make premium Irish Whiskey more accessible to the everyday shopper, without breaking the bank or having to commit to a full-sized bottle.”

Two Stacks Dram In A Can and Two Stacks Double Cream Liqueur are now available at select Tesco locations in Northern Ireland. Dram In A Can is 43% ABV and priced at £5 per 100ml can. Two Stacks Double Cream Irish Liqueur is bottled at 17.5% ABV and is priced at £25 for 700ml.
