American bourbon and vodka coming to Australia

American distiller MGP Ingredients has announced plans to partner with Swift + Moore Beverages Australia to represent TILL American Wheat Vodka and George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This is the first international market expansion for TILL Vodka and George Remus and follows a continued wave of distribution growth for both brands.

“We are thrilled to partner with Swift + Moore Australia to meet consumer demand for TILL Vodka and George Remus in our first international venture,” said Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP Ingredients. “As a heartland distiller with a growing customer base, we are extremely proud that the recognition of our brand quality has achieved global recognition. We look forward to teaming up with Swift + Moore for long-term success.”

This announcement follows significant distribution gains for both TILL Vodka and George Remus, highlighted by double-digit growth over the past year. Both brands are crafted by the expert distillers at MGP Ingredients. TILL is produced from locally grown Kansas wheat, distilled for refinement through a proprietary process by the team in Atchison, Kansas. George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey is crafted from MGP’s aged bourbon reserves, located in its 171-year old Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distillery, one of the oldest and most historic spirits facilities in the country.

“Swift + Moore Australia is committed to delivering products with exceptional quality, authenticity and taste to our customers,” said Michael McShane, Managing Director of Swift + Moore. “There are many similarities between Australia and the U.S. in our mutual appreciation of the best craft spirits, and we’re excited to join forces with MGP Ingredients to launch TILL Vodka and George Remus Bourbon in our country. We look forward to developing creative cocktail education, training programs and consumer events that allow for an enduring discovery of these brands.”
