Fercullen Irish Whiskey

Fercullen Irish Whiskey introduced to the US

09 January, 2023

Fercullen Irish Whiskey from the Powerscourt Estate will now be available across the US as a result of a new distribution partnership with Zamora Company USA.

Zamora Company USA will import, sell, and market Fercullen in the US, effective immediately, alongside spirits such as Licor 43, Martin Miller’s Gin, Double Cross Vodka, Yellow Rose Whiskey, Lolea Sangria, Don Papa Rum, San Cosme Mezcal, and Villa Massa Limoncello, Amaretto and Vermouth. 

Andrew Stewart, global brand manager at Zamora Company USA, said: “As we continue to grow our spirits and wines in the US, Irish whiskey has long been at the top of our list of categories to strengthen our portfolio, and Fercullen from the Powerscourt Distillery has always been our top choice.” 

Fercullen Falls, the flagship of the Fercullen line, is a new small-batch 50/50 blend of malt and grain whiskeys. 

“We’re especially excited to introduce Fercullen Falls, a lighter tasting and approachable Irish whiskey bottled at 43% ABV, which makes it a perfect spirit for enjoying straight or as a cocktail base,” Stewart added. 

The malt whiskey in the blend was matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels, with the grain in a combination of ex-bourbon and new heavy char oak casks. 

In addition, Zamora Company USA will also release Fercullen Single Malt, Fercullen 15-Year-Old Irish Whiskey, and limited edition Fercullen 21-Year-Old Single Malt in the US. 

Ryan Stapleton, Powerscourt Distillery’s global head of sales said: “The USA is the largest market for Irish whiskey sales globally, representing 41% of global market share in 2021. 

“We at the Powerscourt Distillery have waited until the right time and crucially finding the right partner before we launched Fercullen Irish Whiskey into the US market and we are in a great position to appoint Zamora Company USA as our national importers,” Stapleton continued.
