Big Fella whiskey on its way to United States

Cooley Distillery, Ireland’s last remaining independent whiskey maker, has signed a deal to supply a Michael Collins-branded Irish whiskey to Sidney Frank Importing, a US drinks distributor, according to the Sunday Times.

Cooley expects to supply 50,000 cases of whiskey to the company in year one of the deal, quite ambitious given that 550,000 cases of Irish whiskey are sold in America each year. It would make the company Cooley’s biggest customer.
