US/UK: Gemini to handle W&M whiskies in US
US importer Gemini Spirits & Wine has announced a distribution deal for the whisky portfolio of UK distiller Whyte & Mackay.
Gemini, which is owned by US spirits group Sazerac, said today (22 February) that it would handle a slew of Whyte & Mackay whiskies, including the namesake blended Scotch and Jura single malt.
Gemini general manager Jon Mowry said he was "thrilled" at the deal with Whyte & Mackay, which is currently in the middle of advanced takeover talks with India's UB Group.
Whyte & Mackay international commercial director Tony Roberts said Gemini was "the ideal choice for building our brands in the US".
Officials at Whyte & Mackay could not be reached for further comment as just-drinks went to press.
