Glasgow Whisky purchases Tromie Mills Distillery

Glasgow Whisky has hailed the next stage in its expansion as the company announced its purchase of Tromie Mills Distillery.

Tromie Mills, owner of a site in Drumguish in the Cairngorms National Park, will see significant investment by its new owners to build a contemporary, more environmentally sustainable distillery that stays true to traditional whisky production techniques.

The current tenant Speyside Distillers - which announced plans to build its own distillery earlier this year - will continue to operate from the Drumguish site until its lease expires in 2025.

Founded in 2007, Glasgow Whisky has built a global name in bulk exports and branded cased sales of whisky. Owners Graham Taylor and Stuart Hendry have lauded the new deal as an exciting evolution for the business.

Graham said: "The addition of a distillery in Drumguish is an exciting and natural progression as we continue to build for the future. Since our launch in 2007, we have seen significant growth in all areas of our Scotch whisky brands and products across the globe. The distillery will enable us to add to our portfolio and continue to supply our clients around the world with quality Scotch whisky."

Stuart added: "Our plans for the distillery will give us the opportunity to celebrate an established and known site, whilst bringing it into the 21st century in terms of distilling innovation, sustainability and production methods. We are extremely excited to have this opportunity to evolve our business."
