Ready to drink: Finnieston Distillery Company will launch the RTD cocktails in the UK in June

Made by the Finnieston Distillery Company, each ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktail features the firm’s own blended Scotch whisky, created in partnership with independent bottler Douglas Laing.

Following a ‘successful’ pilot run of two of its cocktails in 2016, which sold out across Scottish Aldi stores, each drink has an abv of 5% and will retail for around £2.50.

Set to launch in the UK in June, the complete RTD range includes:

  • Finnieston Fling: Scotch, ginger ale, lemon, lime and mint
  • Old Fashioned Green Tea: Scotch and green tea
  • Scotch on the Beach: Scotch, ginger beer, vanilla and strawberry
  • Shanghai Sour: Scotch, lemon and Lapsang honey

James Doig, CEO of Finnieston Distillery Company (previously named Dram2O), said: ‘We take the view that people should drink it [Scotch] how they want, not how they’re told to.

‘Finnieston has a historic association with Scotch whisky distilling and we’ve taken inspiration from Ebenezer Connal, a 19th-century merchant who converted one of his family businesses into a distillery in Finnieston Street and created a Scotch whisky infused with exotic herbs and spices, and a taste of heather, which really made it stand out from others at the time.’
