Katy Nelstop of The English Whisky Co, said the new beer would be "incredibly popular" with its customers and expected that a gift pack with the beer and the firm's single malt would be "a great seller" in its shop.

"Whisky fans are real connoisseurs and they love to experiment with other whisky-based products. We know this new whisky beer will be incredibly popular with our customers," she said.
