Glenglassaugh Distillery Company joins SWA

Published:  23 July, 2008

The Glenglassaugh Distillery Company Ltd has announced its membership of the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA).

Located near Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, The Glenglassaugh Distillery was recently acquired by European investment house the Scaent Group and work is currently underway to re open for production later this year.

In addition, the company has purchased stocks of existing rare Glenglassaugh malts which will be released as exclusive limited editions to the luxury marketplace.

Glenglassaugh, led by managing director Stuart Nickerson, has so far recruited a team including former manager of Glenmorangie Graham Eunson as distillery manager and whisky expert Ian Buxton as marketing consultant.

Stuart Nickerson said: "At Glenglassaugh we believe that we have a unique opportunity to breathe life back into a hidden gem. The SWA is of vital importance to the whisky industry and we recognise the part they play in ensuring that brands like ours become part of Scotland's future whisky heritage."

SWA spokesman David Williamson said: "That Scotch Whisky is to be distilled again at Glenglassaugh is good news for the industry. We are delighted Stuart and his team are going to play their part at industry level and welcome them as the SWA's fifty-fourth member company."
