UK: Burn Stewart launches Web push
Burn Stewart Distillers has launched two websites for a brace of its Scotch whisky brands.
The company, which is owned by UK-based drinks group CL World Brands, said yesterday (19 December) that its Bunnahabhain and Black Bottle brands are to get online support.
Bunnahabhain single malt is now available to buy on its website, www.bunnahabhain.com. While the site describes the history and surroundings of the Bunnahabhain bay, Internet users can purchase the 12-year-old, 18-year-old and 25-year-old single malt whiskies, as well as limited edition whiskies including a 35-year-old 1971 vintage.
Burn Stewart has also unveiled www.blackbottle.com for its Black Bottle blended Scotch. The site also looks at the brand and its history.
Last month, Caribbean conglomerate CL Financial, which owns CL World Brands, appointed Fraser Thornton to be Burn Stewart's managing director. Thornton, who has been with Burn Stewart since 1996, replaced Steve Campbell, who moved to head up the company's operations in Asia.
