This luxury single malt scotch Whisky has been available in most premium outlets since 2012 and in early August, Edrington, the maker of The Macallan Whisky, announced the introduction of the new aged triple cask series in the Kenyan market. This comes after the International Wines and Spirits Record (IWSR), noted that whisky consumption in Kenya grew by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.7% in the five years 2013 to 2018.
