Gordon & MacPhail x Chopin Imports

Scotch whisky distiller and bottler Gordon & MacPhail have announced a multi-year agreement with Chopin Imports, the marketing company for Chopin Vodka and other spirit brands.

Chopin will manage the Gordon & MacPhail range including the Discovery, Connoisseurs Choice, Distillery labels as well as special releases from their Private Collections and Generations. It will also manage eight Benromach lines and introduced the distiller’s Red Door Gin and Dunkeld Atholl Brose from Gordon & MacPhail to the US market.

As such, Chopin will be responsible for distributing more than 100 spirit offerings ranging in age from 10 years to over 70.

Chopin Imports COO, Chuck Kane, said: “The Urquhart family has entrusted Chopin with not just representing a great line-up of products but also with representing four generations of their family history. Moreover, Chopin has a great opportunity to build the Benromach brand across the United States.”

David King, international director of sales at Gordon & MacPhail, added: “The United States is an important market and very much a focus of our long-term plan to build upon the Gordon & MacPhail single malt whisky brand status in the luxury sector while bringing attention to the Benromach brand.

“It only makes sense for us to work with a company that builds and understands the luxury spirit category in the U.S. I am confident, that our unique spirits collection coupled with the expertise of Chopin Imports, will bring great success in the US market.”

Tad Dorda, founder and CEO of Chopin Imports, commented: “It is a privilege to add Gordon & MacPhail and Benromach to the Chopin Import portfolio. There is no greater trust, quality, selection or authority when it comes to whisky than Gordon & MacPhail. The world over, their Scotch Whisky collection cannot be matched”.
