Edrington adds Wyoming Whiskey to US portfolio

Edrington has formed a strategic partnership with Wyoming Whiskey which includes the acquisition of its US business.

Effective immediately, Edrington Americas will assume all sales, marketing and distribution of Wyoming Whiskey products.

Ian Curle, chief executive of Edrington, said: “This deal is a further step towards becoming the world’s leading premium spirits company and adds to a brilliant year in which we opened our award-winning distillery and brand home for The Macallan.”

Wyoming Whiskey was founded and still operated in Kirby, Wyoming, by fourth generation cattle ranchers Brad and Kate Mead and their son Sam and all whiskey production will continue in Kirby under the same conditions.

Brad Mead, founder and president of Wyoming Whiskey added: “With Edrington, Wyoming Whiskey will be offered opportunities that we could not have achieved on our own. This partnership will allow our brand to grow without the practical limitations that we faced as a standalone distiller. It’s an exciting time for us.”
