Famous Grouse producer Edrington unveils Glasgow HQ

100 Queen Street 2

Edrington, the producer and distributor of global spirits brands, including The Famous Grouse, The Macallan and Highland Park has announced its new global HQ will be based in Glasgow.
The building at 100 Queen Street, owned by Esson Properties, will undergo a £7.6 million renovation, including the addition of two new floors.
Edrington’s new main office will occupy the top four floors of the building. It will bring the company’s board and its business units – which manage Edrington’s spirits brands – together in a single location.
The company, whose main operations site is currently based in Great Western Road in Glasgow, plans to close its Perth office in West Kinfauns.
Edrington CEO, Ian Curle, said, “We looked at a number of properties in Glasgow for this strategically-important move, and Queen Street combines high-quality accommodation with a compelling location at the heart of Glasgow’s professional and cultural centre.
“Bringing together our leadership and business units in a central Glasgow location will help ensure that the business is in the best possible shape to deliver long-term growth. It will improve international connections and bring us close to the creative and digital skills necessary to grow our business.”
Edrington employs more than 2,300 people worldwide, with more than 60% based overseas.
