Rémy Doubling Production At Bruichladdich

February 27, 2013

After acquiring Islay’s Bruichladdich Scotch whisky distillery for $90 million last September, Rémy Cointreau says it’s hiking production at the facility in anticipation of future demand. Bruichladdich is set to produce 1.5 million liters of its single malt Scotch this year. Under its previous owner, a private consortium led by Mark Reynier, the distillery was producing 750,000 liters annually and operating at only about 50% capacity. The distillery—which has a workforce of 50 employees—is now running around the clock five and a half days a week, Rémy says.

Bruichladdich currently sells only around 4,000 cases in the U.S. market. Jon Moramarco, president of Winebow—which for now remains the brand’s U.S. marketer—told Shanken News Daily last year that its growth has been “limited only by supply constraints.”
