Brown-Forman køber BenRiach/Glendronach/Glenglassaugh

Brown-Forman, som står bag Jack Daniel’s køber BenRiach Distillery Company Limited for £285 millioner.

Med købet følger BenRiach, Glendronach og Glenglassaugh plus en tappehal og 165 fuldtidsansatte. Brown-Forman har tidligere ejet en mindre andel af Glenmorangie, men den andel blev solgt fra i 2005.

Paul Varga, CEO hos Brown-Forman udtaler:

The acquisition of these super premium brands will allow Brown-Forman to re-enter one of our industry’s most exciting and consistent growth segments, Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The GlenDronach, BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh single malt brands are rich in history and we believe they will continue to prosper and grow in our hands.

Billy Walker, Managing Director hos BenRiach udtaler:

We feel immensely privileged to have been custodians of this business for the last 12 years, and to be associated with these wonderful brands and great distilleries. Our team have energized these distilleries and engaged creatively and successfully with the premium end of the market. We are very confident that Brown-Forman will take The GlenDronach, BenRiach, and Glenglassaugh brands to the next level and fulfill their full potential, and prove to be worthy custodians of these historic distilleries.

Det bliver spændende at følge fremover, men jeg kan da ikke undgå at være lidt trist.
