Kiefer Sutherland’s Red Bank Whisky Launches In The UK

Canadian actor and musician, Kiefer Sutherland, has launched his brand Red Bank Whisky in the UK. 

The brand, founded by the actor along with Gary Briggs, Shawn Hiscott, and Rob Steele in 2022, the whisky is produced on Canada’s Atlantic Coast under the watchful eye of Master Blender, Michel Marcil. 

Red Bank Whisky is a careful blend of rye, corn, and wheat whiskies. The resulting aromas include “notes of oak spice, orchard fruit, allspice, and caramel”, and a smooth mouthfeel with a dry finish. Its perfect balance was recently recognized by the judges at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, in which Red Bank won a gold medal. 

The UK launch of Red Bank constitutes a large expansion into a new market. Mangrove Global, a premium spirits distributor, is aiding Red Bank in its journey into the UK retail space. 

Keifer Sutherland commented on the expansion, saying: “The thing that I found so fascinating about Red Bank and this journey developing the whisky is the incredible pride Canadians take in themselves and their country. I was born in England and I know the British people feel the same, but I grew up in Canada and one of the things that I’ve admired about Canada is its great diversity not just in its landscapes and culture, but it’s people as well. I am proud to have Red Bank represent all that is authentically Canadian and I am absolutely thrilled to bring it to the UK with the help of Mangrove Global.”

Red Bank whisky is now available for an RRP of £49 from Master of Malt and other retailers.
