National listing for Glengoyne

23 January, 2013

Glengoyne Highland has secured a deal that will see its recently repackaged 10 Year Old single malt whisky stocked at the top 150 malt-selling Sainsbury’s stores nationwide.

The deal means the whisky is now stocked at 169 Sainsbury’s stores after a successful trial in 19 stores.

In autumn 2012 the brand relaunched its 10 Year Old, 12 Year Old and 21 Year Old single malts.

It also added three new malts to complete the line-up – a new premium Glengoyne 15 year old malt, a new cask strength expression to replace the existing 12 Year Old cask strength, and a 18 Year Old replacing the 17 Year Old.

Each new expression has been crafted from some of the finest sherry casks within Glengoyne’s warehouses.  
Neil Boyd, UK commercial director for Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “Since the Glengoyne re-launch, consumer response has been fantastic which is being reflected in significantly increased sales.

“We continue to build our distribution base in order to make Glengoyne available to consumers everywhere and this additional Sainsbury’s listing is a welcome and  ideal opportunity to take our flagship brand  to malt-lovers in areas where Glengoyne was not previously available.” 

The Glengoyne 10 Year Old is available at Sainsbury’s for £32.99.

I was asked recently what I thought the biggest change had been in wine fashion in the past five years. My answer was unequivocal: sales of pink wines. From being a niche that expanded and contracted with the sunshine, rosé has subtly but steadily become a stalwart of many merchants’ ranges, with Provence firmly at the top and asked for by name.
