Bladnoch partners with Twenty20 Beverages in US distribution deal

Bladnoch has announced its new collaboration with US sales and marketing company Twenty20 Beverages. The partnership aims to grow the brand’s presence across the US. 
Twenty20 will focus on premium on-trade and prestige retail as it expands Bladnoch’s core offering into new markets. 
Led by owner David Prior and master distiller Nick Savage, Bladnoch is the oldest privately owned Scotch whisky distillery in the world. Recent releases from the distillery include the Dragon Series.
Bladnoch CEO Glen Gribbon said: “Our proposition to create a bold Galloway spirit with a proud heritage is unique. As a result, demand for Bladnoch has grown at pace in recent years, not only in the UK but increasingly in the US. 
“Our partnership with Twenty20 Beverages marks the next step in our vision for growth in the United States. We’re looking forward to working with John and Ashley and their team across the US to reach more whisky enthusiasts with our signature Lowland Scotch whisky style.” 
John Ormiston, partner and co-founder of Twenty20 Beverages, added: “We are excited about our partnership with Bladnoch Distillery in the United States. Our quality brand building approach will work very well with the Bladnoch Distillery portfolio. We look forward to building a close working relationship with the Bladnoch leadership team, furthering their legacy, and building upon the success that they have achieved over the past 207 years.”
The deal with Twenty20 follows Bladnoch’s partnership with UK distributor Enotria&Coe earlier this month, and the appointment of actor Mark Rannoch as its first brand ambassador.
