Quotes

"Kininvie is a truly remarkable whisky, and a great William Grant’s story. Only a family owned Scotch company could open a distillery and choose not to release any whisky for 23 years. A lot of people in the know have been asking us to release Kininvie for decades, but the family was not to be rushed" Taylor explained
"Vodka distilleries are saying, 'Listen, let's get back to our basics. Let's make these products and represent ourselves in a way that holds true to mixing a very clean cocktail," says Jeff Leanheart, beverage director of The Smith Lincoln Center in New York City."
"This probably partly explains the rather shallow nature of the recent weakness in European equity markets, as investors perceive that narrow national interest will outweigh any decisive action in the short term, which will be particularly cold comfort to the Netherlands who have been affected most by last week's tragic events."
"Premium BWS brands are the core area of growth right now. As the population gets older, more affluent and with more single households, we can expect the trend for premiumisation to continue, so the role for premium spirits is more relevant than ever.”"
