Glen Rock, NJ, May 21, 2019 – Market St. Spirits, a division of Opici Wines, continues its move into high gear with the addition of world-renowned Highland Queen Blended Scotch Whiskies. Founded in 2014, Market St. is dedicated to building a portfolio reflecting quality and craftsmanship across the price spectrum. Fully complementing Market St.’s Tullibardine Single Malt Scotch Whisky range, the addition of the independent family-owned, award-winning Highland Queen Whiskies are poised to deliver carefully curated, hand-crafted blended offerings at exceptionally attractive price-quality tiers.
Highland Queen Blended Scotch Whiskies have a long, fine provenance. The whisky was originally created in Leith, Edinburgh, using time-honored techniques dictated by Roderick Macdonald of Macdonald & Muir. Roderick invested in the finest whisky stocks, taking a decade to finesse the expertly crafted blend. The golden liquid was named Highland Queen’, inspired by the Port of Leith’s association with Mary, the ‘Queen of Scots’ who landed there from France in 1561. Loved by tastemakers across the world, Highland Queen is an expertly matured, mellowed and blended whisky with a well-rounded smooth finish.
“The addition of Highland Queen brings great satisfaction in knowing these exceptionally crafted, award-winning selections fill a compelling price-value position for Market St. Spirits.” says Don Opici, Market St. Managing Director. “The Highland Queen range will bolster our core offerings and further define our unique footprint in the marketplace.”
Market St. is pleased to offer the Highland Queen portfolio of whiskies comprising:
- Highland Queen — $16.99 SRP
- Sherry Cask Finish — $18.99 SRP
- Highland Queen 1561 — $29.99 SRP
- 1561 – 30 Year Old — $199.99 SRP
“We are delighted to grow our relationship with Market St. Spirits” says Matthew Johns, Director for Terroir Distillers. “The US market continues to be a bright spot for our Tullibardine range of Single Malt scotch whiskies and now the addition of Highland Queen further elevates our presence across the U.S.”
