Earlier this month we announced we had been shortlisted for the Exporter of the Year award at the Highland Business awards 2015. Well, we can now announce that we won - no question mark required! Ahead of stiff competition, one of our regional sales managers, Graham Nicolson, attended the prestigious event at the Drumossie Hotel in Inverness on Friday 25th September and gladly accepted the award on behalf of the team.

Commenting on the award, Stephen Bremner - sales director - said: “We are incredibly proud of this recognition of our exporting achievements – we have seen our export sales turnover increase by 88% over the last five years when, for the same period, the industry as a whole has seen a decline of 7%. We currently export to around 50 international markets and, with our focussed strategy, we look forward to establishing a presence in the ‘newer’ markets where demand for single malt is growing fast, particularly in South America and Africa.”
