160 years of exceptional spirits
Edrington's success stems from a heritage of exceptional people, dedicated to crafting spirit brands of the highest quality.

A unique ownership model
Edrington's ownership model is unique in its industry. The origins of our company stretch back more than 160 years to 1861, when William Robertson founded the Robertson & Baxter company in Glasgow.
One hundred years later, his granddaughters formed a charitable trust to own the business. Elspeth, Agnes and Ethel Robertson wished to use the future success of the family business to extend the support they had given to charities in their lifetimes.
Today, Edrington's principal shareholder continues to be The Robertson Trust, and the Trust has now given £343 million to charities in Scotland.

Our strategy
Our vision is to give more by crafting exceptional ultra-premium spirit brands.
The Macallan is our central focus, supported by Highland Park and The Glenrothes in the fast-growing single malt category and Naked Malt in the blended malt category. Our portfolio is completed with Brugal premium rum from the Dominican Republic, The Famous Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky, and Wyoming Whiskey and Noble Oak in the American Whiskey category. Edrington also has a strategic partnership with No.3 London Dry Gin.
