Major marketer buying Cutty Sark

The Edrington Group has bought itself another whisky.

The Scottish marketer of The Famous Grouse and The Macallan has reached agreement with Berry Bros. & Rudd (BB&R) to buy its Cutty Sark Scotch whisky brand and handle all distribution.

Under the deal, BB&R will acquire the Glenrothes single malt brand from Edrington. Edrington also signed a long-term supply agreement to provide whisky fillings and stocks to BB&R, with Edrington retaining ownership of The Glenrothes distillery.

The deal is expected to be finalized in April.

BB&R, which was founded in the 17th Century, is Britain's oldest wine and spirit merchant.
