French drinks giant Rémy Cointreau Group has further extended its portfolio into the fast growing high-end single malt whisky category, with the acquisitions of Westland Distillery and Domaine des Hautes Glaces. Based in Seattle, Westland Distillery produces whiskey that offers a distinctly American single malt style. Westland boasts a portfolio of high-end single malts. Domaine des Hautes Glaces is an organic mountain farm distillery located in the heart of the French Alps, which crafts exceptional single malt whiskies.

Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet, chief executive of Rémy Cointreau Group, comments: “We are thrilled to welcome Westland into the Rémy Cointreau family, adding to our portfolio a distinctly American-style single malt whiskey.” Rémy Cointreau Group plans to develop the brand further across the United States before expanding it globally in the future.

Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet adds: “The acquisition of the Domaine des Hautes Glaces distillery represents the opportunity for Rémy Cointreau to incorporate into its portfolio a high-end French single malt whisky brand crafted in harmony with terroir, people and time – its whiskies are certified organically grown and mainly use renewable and local energies. This acquisition also strengthens the group in the segment of single malt whiskies, a category in strong growth across all regions of the world, especially for the very high-end.”
