Arbikie follows Andrew Carnegie in Pursuit of The American Dream


14th November 2017

Scotland’s leading field to bottle distiller Arbikie eyes US expansion as major growth market for the artisan distiller. Following in the footsteps of Andrew Carnegie. Scotland’s Gin Distillery of the Year, Arbikie, is centre stage at Carnegie Hall on Monday 13th November.

Co-owner David Stirling now living in the US, is currently driving Arbikie's export ambitions forward. Like Andrew Carnegie, Arbikie is starting in Pennsylvania, having signed with the artisan wine and spirit importer Nawrocki. Nawrocki is an ideal partner for Arbikie who identified with Arbike’s commitment to field to bottle distilling with a focus on provenance and quality of products.

With an eye on the North East States of America (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut) for expansion Arbikie are targeting growth of $500,000 dollars.

Arbikie is delighted to be sponsoring the event happening in New York on Monday 13th November 2017.

David Stirling commented - “The Children’s Monologues' are based on the words of children growing up in rural and remote African townships. This one of theatre’s major events, directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle in New York and all proceeds are going to Dramatic Need and South Africa. Naively having hitched from Cape Town to Zanzibar when I was younger, I witnessed the real hardships of no running water, no electricity and extreme poverty on my travels. Arbikie are therefore honoured to supporting these endeavours and following in the footsteps of the world’ greatest philanthropist and Scot, Andrew Carnegie”.

James McAvoy is Scotland’s star in a glamorous collection of Hollywood’s finest.
