Brown-Forman Completes Gin Mare Purchase

Brown-Forman Corp. said it completed the purchase of the Gin Mare brands from Vantguard and MG Destilerías.  The company announced its agreement to purchase in September. Purchase price was not disclosed.

“As a unique gin with a distinctive taste profile, Gin Mare is an exciting addition to our company and we believe it will contribute positively to our growth and success," said Lawson Whiting, President and CEO, Brown-Forman.

Gin Mare, the world’s No. 1 ultra-premium gin, is a Spanish gin with a Mediterranean-inspired recipe of botanicals, including Arbequina olives, thyme, rosemary, and basil. Gin Mare Capri, introduced last year, is made with Italian bergamot and lemons, along with Gin Mare’s four principal botanicals.

Gin Mare will continue to be produced at MG Destilerías in Vilanova i la Geltrú, a fishing village between the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada.
