French drinks group Remy Cointreau has created a new ‘Whisky Business Unit’ following its recent acquisitions of Domaine des Hautes Glaces in France and Westland Distillery in the USA to further extended its portfolio into the fast growing high-end single malt whisky category. The new unit is headed by Simon Coughlin (pictured right), who is currently chief executive at Bruichladdich, Remy Cointreau’s Scotch whisky operation.

Based in Seattle, Westland Distillery produces whiskey that offers a distinctly American single malt style. Domaine des Hautes Glaces is an organic mountain farm distillery located in the heart of the French Alps.

Simon Coughlin will remain at Islay-based Bruichladdich and take overall control of all three companies. Douglas Taylor (pictured left), currently Global Brand Director, has been appointed chief executive of Bruichladdich. Douglas Taylor joined Bruichladdich in 2011 and has worked closely with Simon Coughlin since that time.
