The Edrington Group

The Edrington Group is Scotland's leading international premium spirits company, best known for producing the Famous Grouse, the best selling whisky in Scotland for the last 26 years. Its portfolio also includes Cutty Sark and premium single malts The Macallan and Highland Park. Recently, the group acquired a 60 per cent stake in Brugal, the leading golden rum in the Caribbean.

Edrington is privately-owned, based in Glasgow, has 10 sites around Scotland (including five distilleries), employs over 800 people and had a turnover of £291.5 million in the 12 months to end March 2008. It exports to over 100 countries and has a corporate strategy of focusing more resources on developing its premium whisky and rum brands to leading positions in international markets. Edrington is controlled by a charitable trust, The Robertson Trust, which gave a record £8.4 million to a wide variety of charitable causes last year.
