Kiefer Sutherland brings Red Bank whisky to UK

Canadian actor, musician and whisky enthusiast Kiefer Sutherland is launching Red Bank whisky into the UK in partnership with Mangrove Global. 

The whisky was c-founded by 24 and Designated Survivor star Kiefer Sutherland with Gary Briggs, Shawn Hiscott and Rob Steele in 2022, and distilled by master blender Michel Marcil.

Red Bank is a balance of rye, corn and wheat whiskies, with notes of oak spice, orchard fruit, all-spice and caramel, the brand said.

Mangrove will position the Canadian whisky into its World Whisky portfolio, and said it was “a great time to add this to our collection”. It will be available to both the on- and off-trade through Mangrove Global with a retail price of £49, and is available from Master of Malt and other outlets.

Kiefer Sutherland, co-founder of Red Bank Whisky, said: “The thing that I found so fascinating about Red Bank and this journey developing the whisky is the incredible pride Canadians take in themselves and their country.

“I was born in England and I know the British people feel the same, but I grew up in Canada and one of the things that I’ve admired about Canada is its great diversity not just in its landscapes and culture, but it’s people as well.

“I am proud to have Red Bank represent all that is authentically Canadian and I am absolutely thrilled to bring it to the UK with the help of Mangrove Global.”

Red Bank Whisky said it wanted to position the Canadian product as a ‘home away from home’ in the UK.

Nick Gillett, managing director of Mangrove Global said: “Red Bank is a product that champions and reinvigorates the longstanding history of the Canadian Whisky category. Red Bank is an exceptional liquid that can rely on the outstanding talent of having Kiefer as one of its founders.

“His involvement at every stage of production, knowledge of the category, approachability, passion for the journey ahead, as well as being great fun, meant this was an easy decision for me to add to the portfolio.
