St. Kilian launches "Bud Spencer Whisky

Bud Spencer announcement

St. Kilian Distillers has secured the licence for the single malt "Bud Spencer - The Legend".

Which star goes with whisky?

George Clooney, Heidi Klum or Bruce Lee? Which star could accompany the launch of our first pre-core standard product? A good question and not an easy decision. But we at St. Kilian Distillers had a brilliant idea! There can only be one who is an ideal match for the whisky brand: Everyone knows and loves it. He's got "oomph" and does justice. He likes to drink whisky and prefers a good single malt. He's been around a lot in his films and like a good whisky, it lasts forever and becomes quasi-immortal . He is funny, has power and is a true hero. He is a legend:

Bud Spencer mild label
Bud Spencer "in action" - known all over the world

In his films, our hero Bud Spencer fights for law and justice around the world. Fearless and unconventional, he puts all scoundrels and criminals out of action. He then likes to drink a whisky or two. We think he's earned it.

By the way: Did you know that Carlo Pedersoli (better known as Bud Spencer) comes from Italy, had a German nanny and played in numerous Italian-American western films? Even though he is no longer with us, he has become immortal through his films and is still omnipresent today!

Successful licensing cooperation with BSL

Bavaria Sonor Licensing (BSL), a business division of Bavaria Media GmbH, was commissioned by the rights holder Plattfuss Vertriebs GmbH to expand the product world around Bud Spencer and Terence Hill with licensing cooperations and corresponding licensed products throughout Europe. BSL brokered this licensing cooperation for the "Bud Spencer" brand and St. Kilian Distillers GmbH.

Ivica Maracic, Licensing & Sales Director Bavaria Sonor Licensing: "Bud Spencer and whisky are simply the perfect brand and product fit. A western without whisky in the saloon would be like Bud Spencer without pithy and diaphragm-straining sayings. We are very pleased that we were able to win St. Kilian Distillers, a multi-award-winning Bavarian distillery, for Bud Spencer!"
