Gruppo Campari has announced plans to sell Carolans and Irish Mist drinks brands to Heaven Hill Brands. This will happen through the sale of all of the share capital of the subsidiary TJ Carolan & Son Ltd in a deal worth US$165 million (€141.7 million). The transaction is due to be expected on August 1, 2017. Gruppo Campari will continue to distribute the Carolans and Irish Mist brands outside the US.
Irish brands are looking to capitalise on the success of Irish drinks brands in the US market in 2016. Last year, exports to the US soared to over €514 million with whiskey leading the way in terms of popularity. According to Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed, the US is the destination for nearly 45% of produce – it is the fastest growing spirits brand globally with exports of 3.7 million cases. “I am determined our new and impressive progress will endure,” Creed said.
Mark Reynier, founder and CEO of Waterford Distillery, and the former MD of Scotland’s Bruichladdich Distillery, has stated that the arrival of new Irish whiskey distilleries and brands could mean that some could “play fast and loose with presentation”. With so many more distilleries in Ireland, the establishment of greater regulations for the industry should be made a “priority. Reynier was speaking to The Spirits Business on the subject.
Dublin Whiskey Tours, Irish Whiskey Magazine and The Rag Trader Bar will hold a special evening tasting and food sampling entitled ‘Irish Whiskey Reinvented’ on August 15 2017 in the Dublin Whiskey Festival. We’ll be tasting six delicious Irish whiskeys with some equally tasty Irish food. You can enjoy two cocktails from Prizefighter Whiskey and Slane Whiskey, a special blind tasting, and a Teeling Irish Coffee to send you on your way at the end of the night. You can experience all this will be after you have enjoyed some whiskey-inspired music and acquired much knowledge from our guest whiskey expert speakers.
