Speyside spirit maker Eight Lands launches vodka in Canada

Scottish spirits brand Eight Lands has launched its Organic Speyside Vodka in Canada. 

The award-winning spirit was recently launched in SAQ stores across Quebec, as part of an ongoing push by head of distilling and operations Meeghan Murdoch to increase the brand's Canadian connections.

Montreal-born Meeghan oversaw the creation of the Organic Speyside Vodka, which is distilled and bottled at the Glenrinnes Distillery in the heart of Scotch whisky country.

Eight Lands, named for the eight different countries visible from the top of Ben Rinnes, launched its two products, a vodka and a gin, in June 2019. Meeghan joined the company in 2018, bringing 25 years' international experience across brewing, winemaking and distilling.

Of the announcement, Meegham said: "I am delighted to see Eight Lands Organic Speyside Vodka launching with SAQ accross Quebec. As a Canadian, now living and working in the spirits industry in Scotland, I have big ambitions for the brand in Canada. As the demand for high-quality and organic spirits continues to grow, I am keen to see Eight Lands recognised as one of the leading organic spirits in the market."

Eight Lands appointed a brand development manager earlier this year in a bid to increase its national and international profile.
