Money poured into whisky branding

Glendronach Distillery

Work on a 250,000 development of the GlenDronach malt whisky brand is getting under way.

The Aberdeenshire distillery was bought earlier this year from Chivas Brothers by the Larbert-based BenRiach Distillery Company.

BenRiach managing director Billy Walker said the investment was the beginning of a strategy to re-package and re-launch GlenDronach worldwide.

A major part of the investment is the development of a new visitor centre.

Regional sales director James Cowan said: "GlenDronach is a bit of a sleeping giant.

"But we have great plans for it in our markets in the UK, Germany, USA, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Italy, Switzerland, France, Canada, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and China, amongst others.

"We're looking forward to breathing new life into it and giving it the attention and commitment it deserves."
