Beam bought 2 Gingers in December

Beam Inc is to extend distribution of its Irish whiskey brand, 2 Gingers, into nine new US states this year.

The brand, which Beam bought last December, will be available in 19 states after the rollout, Beam said this week without disclosing a timetable. “The response fans have had to 2 Gingers thus far has been remarkable and I'm thrilled to bring it to new markets,” said 2 Gingers founder and COO Kieran Folliard.

The new markets are: Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.

2 Gingers is already available in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The brand is produced in Ireland's Kilbeggan Distilling Company, which Beam bought in January last year.
