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”.
