William Grant & Sons has further invested in the American Whiskey category by purchasing Tuthilltown Spirits.
Sound familiar? Tuthilltown produces a number of 'craft' spirits including Hudson Whiskey, which William Grant bought seven years back.
William Grant & Sons has acquired the entire 36-acre Tuthilltown facility based in the Hudson Valley, including the distillery, restaurant, visitor centre and grounds with riverfront views.
This acquisition is a sign of intent and marks the independent Scottish distiller's expansion into American whiskey distilling for the first time.
'William Grant & Sons is a company that holds true family values and is home to a number of spirits brands we respect and admire,' Tuthilltown distillery co-founder Ralph Erenzo said. 'It is renowned for its excellence in distilling, which we share. We’ve been working with William Grant & Sons for a number of years and look forward to building on that relationship to help Tuthilltown fully achieve its potential.'
