Bardstown Bourbon Company has entered into an agreement to acquire US distiller Green River Spirits Company for an undisclosed sum.
The deal will see the bourbon producers join forces to create a “strong, independent spirits company with a commitment to Kentucky whiskey”.
The transaction includes the Green River brand, the Green River Distilling Co site in Owensboro, Kentucky, and its production facility in Charleston, South Carolina.
Bardstown Bourbon’s CEO, Mark Erwin, said: “We’re excited to forge this new partnership, which brings together two world-class teams and expands the breadth of our portfolio and the number of customers served. Bardstown Bourbon Company was founded to honour the traditions and history of Kentucky bourbon while taking a wholly modern approach. The addition of one of the oldest distilleries in Kentucky allows us to offer a comprehensive assortment that showcases the state’s flagship industry.”
The deal, which is scheduled to close this month, is subject to customary closing approvals and conditions.
