K&L Spirits Journal Podcast #28 – Simon Coughlin
Many of us felt like we were losing a close friend when Bruichladdich sold the distillery to Remy Cointreau a while back. For more than a decade, hardcore fans of single malt felt like Bruichladdich was the underground success story that proved you could make great whisky without a corporate sponsor. We feared that Remy's influence would turn an exciting, fun-loving distillery into something mild and mainstream--like Green Day after they made "Dookie." Success is a strange thing. We want our friends to succeed, yet we mourn their success. Listen to Bruichladdich CEO Simon Coughlin talk openly and candidly concerning his feelings about the sale, and about his thoughts for the future.
