Murray McDavid is an independent bottler of single malt Scotch whisky. Murray McDavid was established in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Gordon Wright (who had previously been a director at Springbank Distillery). On December 19, 2000, Murray McDavid purchased the then-dormant Bruichladdich distillery and returned it to production. On July 23, 2012, it was announced that Rémy Cointreau UK Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rémy Cointreau Group had acquired Bruichladdich Distillery Company Limited with Murray McDavid as part of the acquisition.[1] On May 8, 2013, it was announced that Murray McDavid had been sold to UK based Scotch whisky suppliers Aceo Limited,[2] with director of Aceo Ltd, Edward Odim, saying "Our intention is to continue the legacy of Murray McDavid by staying true to its founders' vision and principles such as bottling carefully selected single malts without chill-filtering or adding colour and continuing and developing the tradition of Ace-ing casks". New releases are due in late 2014.
