LK Shields were delighted to advise Halewood Wine & Spirits, the UK’s leading independent drinks manufacturer and distributor, on the sale of a significant stake it held in the capital of Skibbereen Distilleries Holdings Limited, to the original founders of Irish whiskey and gin producer, West Cork Distillers.
The total cost of this buyout was financed by a combination of equity, debt financing and the restructuring of West Cork Distillers balance sheet in order to free up its distributable reserves.
The LK Shields team included the Head of Corporate and Commercial, Richard Curran, Corporate and Commercial Consultant Seanna Mulrean, and Corporate and Commercial Associate Solicitor Joseph De Paor.
