Fields, Morris & Verdin (FM&V) said today that it has started importing and distributing a range of whiskies from High Coast. The distillery, which changed its name from Box Destilleri after a legal row with Bacardi-part-owned Compass Box last year, is based in Adalen, north-east Sweden.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the whiskies are new to the UK market.  

"We are thrilled to be working with the team from High Coast," said Johnny Roberts, spirits director at FM&V. "At 63 degrees N it is one of the world's most northerly distilleries; amazingly the arctic circle passes through their maturing whisky."

Whiskies launching this month include:

  • Älv, Delicate Vanilla - High Coast Single Malt Whisky, RSP GBP50 (US$65)
  • Hav, Oak Spice - High Coast Single Malt Whisky, RSP GBP50
  • Timmer, Peat Smoke - High Coast Single Malt Whisky, RSP GBP50
  • Projekt 63, High Coast Single Malt Whisky RSP GBP110

From September, the company will add Berg, PX Sherry - High Coast Single Malt Whisky, RSP GBP50.

High Coast joins Glenrothes and Daftmill in the FM&V portfolio.
