Two of the most commented upon stories in the whisky world in the last year were the release of both a non-alcoholic whisky and the world’s first Scotch whisky packaged in a can. Now both companies behind the moves, which are based in Fort Lauderdale in Florida, have announced their intention to publicly trade shares with the appointment of the same counsel.
Hamilton & Associates has been appointed as corporate and securities counsel for both ArKay Beverages Inc and Scottish Spirits Group Inc.
According to both press releases, Hamilton & Associates has represented publicly traded companies in securities matters, going public transactions and stock exchange listings for more than ten years.
ArKay released their “alcohol-free whisky” drink earlier this year and was roundly condemned by the Scotch Whisky Association at the time.
Scottish Spirits Group packages imported Scotch whisky in a can with a resealable latex lid and have added vodka, brandy, tequila, rum, gin, Canadian whisky and sake to their range under the Genie brand.
