Zamora Intros Fercullen Irish Whiskey in U.S.

With Irish Whiskey projected to increase 67% frim 2021 to 2026, Zamora Co. USA has won the right to import, sell and market Fecullen in the U.S.

Fercullen's flagship is Fercullen Falls, a new small-batch 50/50 blend of malt and grain whiskeys.  Its high malt content highlights the unique style of the Powerscourt distillery.  Fercullen Falls refers to the Poweerscourt Waterfall on the Powerscourt estate.

“As we continue to grow our world-class spirits and wines in the U.S., Irish whiskey has long been at the top of our list of categories to strengthen our portfolio, and Fercullen from the Powerscourt Distillery has always been our top choice. Fercullen is truly an exceptional spirit, proudly crafted by  one of the most awarded distillery teams in the industry,” says Andrew Stewart, Global Brand Manager at Zamora Co. USA. “We’re especially excited to introduce Fercullen Falls, a lighter tasting and approachable Irish whiskey bottled at 43% ABV – a higher than standard for a malt whiskey blend – which makes it a perfect spirit for enjoying straight or as a cocktail base.”

In addition to Fercullen Falls, Zamora Company USA will also release Fercullen Single Malt, Fercullen 15-Year-Old Irish Whiskey, and limited edition Fercullen 21-Year-Old Single Malt in the U.S.

Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits distributes the Zamora  portfolio in 41 markets, and the company works with other top wholesalers such as Horizon Beverage Group in other U.S. states.
