Whyte and Mackay
The Whyte and Mackay Group (WMG) has been producing Scotch whisky and premium spirits for approaching two hundred years, leveraging its craftmanship to lead the flourishing whisky industry with its award-winning Jura, Fettercairn – and at the pinnacle of the category – The Dalmore.
WMG’s expertise reflects the superior taste of its renowned single malt whiskies and the company’s ability to integrate sustainable and green practices into its supply chain. The company continued to break records in distilling and bottling despite a myriad of supply chain challenges during the year.
While distributing to over 100 countries, WMG’s production happens across its five distilleries in Scotland. After distillation, the spirits are matured in its nearby warehouses before being bottled at its Grangemouth facility and shipped out from its distribution center.
Bodegas Fundador (BF), under Grupo Emperador Spain S.A., is a celebrated brandy and sherry winemaker whose rich history dates back to its former customers—Spanish royalty. One of the first liquors from the Jerez winery dates back to 1730. By 1874, it came to be known as what would become BF’s marquee brand, Fundador.
Fundador Supremo 18, the premium brandy aged in Oloroso sherry casks, won the Platinum Award at the distinguished 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). The award recognizes the complexity of the spirit with its robust notes of fruit and nuts that fade into lighter vanilla are born of the Supremo 18’s careful aging process.
In 2021, BF saw consistent growth across its new key markets unlocked in 2020, including the United Kingdom, Greater China, Latvia and Panama; while expanding its reach to Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, New Zealand, Norway, and South Africa.
