Glenmorangie to Sell Glen Moray to French Company

The Whisky Viking has the news

The Glenmorangie Company announces it has signed a Heads of Terms agreement for the sale of the Glen Moray Distillery in Elgin and the Glen Moray single malt Scotch whisky brand with the independent French spirits company, La Martiniquaise.

The sale of the Glen Moray Distillery represents an important part of The Glenmorangie Company’s re-organisation plans announced in July, which incorporate a major investment programme worth £45 million….

La Martiniquaise is a major spirits group in France. The Company, which is headquartered near Paris, already has significant Scotch whisky operations at Bathgate, West Lothian where Glen Turner single malt and Label 5 blended Scotch whisky are bottled – both leading Scotch whisky brands in France.

Glenmorangie is reportedly really shaking things up this fall with several new bottlings from both Ardbeg and its eponymous brand. It is also moving its HQ to Edinburgh from Broxburn.

Its new Signet brand has been garnering some good reviews.
