October 7, 2014 (West Palm Beach, FL) — CIL US Wines & Spirits, the American subsidiary of independent and family-owned Camus Wines & Spirits, announced today it has been selected as the importer and supplier for Glencadam Single Malt Scotch Whisky in the United States.
Established in 1825, Glencadam is the only remaining distillery in the county of Angus, in the Highlands region of Scotland. In 2003, the Distillery was purchased by an independent Scottish company Angus Dundee Distillers. Today, all Glencadam Single Malt Scotch Whiskies are all non-chill-filtered, with no artificial coloring and bottled at 46% ABV, which is ideal for preserving the aromatic character of the whisky. The portfolio has received numerous awards, including the acclaimed 21 Year-Old, which was named “Best Distillers Single Malt Scotch 20+ Years,” “Best Single Malt” and “Best Whisky” at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Jim Murray ranks Glencadam as “Exceptional” in his 2014 Whiskey Bible: Glencadam 10 Year-Old, 95 points; Glencadam 15 Year-Old, 90.5 points; and Glencadam 21 Year-Old, 94 points.
“From the onset of our relationship with the CAMUS team, we have felt at home through our mutual respect for tradition and handcrafted quality,” said Aaron Hillman, Managing Director, Angus Dundee Distillers. “Both of our portfolios have been guided by generations, and we are confident that the CIL US Wines & Spirits team is ideally suited to bring our fine Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskies to the American audience.”
“The award-winning Glencadam portfolio is a testament to fine craftsmanship and artisan philosophy that has been passed down through generations, just like our approach to producing CAMUS Cognacs,” said Matthew Grace, CEO, CIL US Wines & Spirits. “Single Malt Scotch Whiskies offer the greatest diversity of flavors and bouquets of any category of distilled spirits, and these fine expressions are an ideal addition to the CIL US Wines & Spirits portfolio.”
Effective October, 2014, CIL US will be introducing three Glencadam expressions to Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, California, Nevada, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington, DC and Massachusetts:
- Glencadam 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch, Highlands, Scotland [46% ABV] SRP: $ 55
- Glencadam 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch, Highlands, Scotland [46% ABV] SRP: $ 85
- Glencadam 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch, Highlands, Scotland [46% ABV] SRP: $199
The aggressive rollout will continue in 2015 to additional markets, including New York, Texas and Georgia.
