Ardnamurchan prepares for US debut
Highland Scotch whisky distillery Ardnamurchan is set to launch two single malts in the US after signing a distribution deal with Impex Beverages.
After launching its first single malt in September 2020, Ardnamurchan will be releasing two US-exclusive single malt whiskies in June, marking the producer’s US debut.
The first release will be 5,000 bottles of US-exclusive Ad/04.21.03 single malt Scotch, accompanied by 269 bottles of Single Cask AD/CK187.
Ardnamurchan produces peated and unpeated whiskies. The single malt comprises a 50/50 split of peated and unpeated whiskies, matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon (65%) and ex-Sherry casks (35%).
Ardnamurchan is owned by Scottish independent bottler Adelphi.
Alex Bruce, Ardnamurchan managing director, said: “I have been following the excellent work that Sam [Filmus, president and managing director of Impex Beverages] and his team have been doing with a number of our friends in the industry over the years, and it is really exciting to be launching Ardnamurchan with them this year.
“The timing has also been very opportune for us both, with the introduction of 700ml bottles to match our other markets globally, and the lifting of tariffs on single malt Scotch whisky.
“As the year progresses, we are equally proud to be bringing the Adelphi Independent Bottlings back to the US with Impex as well.”
