Roust launches Darrow scotch whisky in a gift box

Roust Group, the world's seventh largest spirits marketer*, announces the launch of its own Darrow Scotch whisky in a gift box in Russia.
Darrow whisky is distilled, blended and bottled at one of the best distilleries in Scotland. High quality malt and grain spirits from Highland, Speyside and Lowland are aged in charred white oak barrels which give this authentic Scotch whisky a rounded taste with traditional notes of oak and hints of smoke.  

In September 2019, Roust launched its own 100% Scotch whisky brand Darrow in Russia, capitalizing on the trend of consumers seeking more authentic products. In 2020, the whisky category in Russia grows +3% by volume and +6% by value vs last year**. Scotch whisky continues to lead the category with over 50% share. The Darrow Scotch whisky gift box will be distributed across the largest retail chains in Russia starting from October 2020.
