Blog: Andy MortonRémy Cointreau putting Bruichladdich on the map

Andy Morton | 4 September 2013

Bruichladdich's international expansion continues apace a year on from its US$90m sale to Rémy CointreauThe Scotch whisky producer's management team are off to Singapore today (4 September) for the launch of its namesake range in the city-state.

When just-drinks spoke to Bruichladdich's CEO in Cannes last year, shortly after the announcement of the Rémy deal, Simon Coughlin said one of the reasons investors swung behind the decision was Rémy's distribution network and the opportunities it gave Bruichladdich abroad.

With today's news that Scotch exports are rising in both value and volume terms - in Singapore, for example, sales jumped by 19% to GBP174m in the first half of this year - a visit to the Lion City surely won't be the only foreign jaunt for the Islay distillery's executives over the next 12 months.
