Tom Moore Distillery, Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon sold to SazeracJanuary 12th, 2009
Constellation Brands is selling a bunch of its brands (called their “Value Spirits Brands”) to the Sazerac Company, Inc. (the parent company of the Buffalo Trace distillery). A lot of it is low-end whisky (and whiskey) brands and non-whiskey spirits. But the most significant thing, from a whiskey perspective, is that the Tom Moore Distillery, and the whiskeys made there (Barton, Ridgemont Reserve) are part of the deal.
The Constellation Brands press release, which they have posted on their website, is here.
Balblair, Old Pulteney and Speyburn single malt scotch whiskies, along with Black Velvet Canadian whisky, remain with Constellation Brands.
