Smokehead Islay Single Malt Whisky has launched its first-ever pre-mixed single malt cocktails in a can.

Kick-starting the brand-new ready to drink range are two serves: 'Smokehead mixed with Cola’ and ‘Smokehead mixed with Ginger + Lime’.

The 330ml cans are priced at RRP £2.50 with an ABV of 6% and are available to buy online via Amazon or the Smokehead website.

‘Smokehead mixed with Cola’ is an ever-popular, long whisky serve while ‘Smokehead mixed with Ginger Ale + Lime’ blends smoky, sweet Smokehead with aromatic ginger ale, finished with a twist of lime.

Commenting on Smokehead’s latest innovative launch, Iain Weir, Smokehead brand director, said: “There is a long-standing debate whether a single malt should be mixed.

"But Smokehead is an unapologetically bold smoky whisky that is made to be enjoyed however you want it.

“Smokehead refuses to follow the rules of conventional whisky drinking. With BBQ season in full swing, what better time to launch the first ever pre-mixed single malt Scotch whisky in a can.”
