Brown-Forman to invest £30m in The GlenDronach distillery


Brown-Forman has announced it is to invest over £30m investment in The GlenDronach distillery, enabling it to significantly increase production to meet global demand – which has tripled since 2016.

This is the second phase of investment by Brown-Forman in the historic distillery following a major renovation of The GlenDronach Visitors’ Centre in 2020, which created an enhanced visitor experience with a new tasting room, whisky bar, lounge, and retail space.

Proposed plans at the home of the richly sherried Highland Single Malt will build on centuries of whisky making heritage, dating back almost two-hundred years to the distillery’s establishment by James Allardice in 1826.

Laura Tolmie, Distillery Manager, said: “As a small, traditional Scottish distillery, we’re very proud to be custodians of such a revered Single Malt at The GlenDronach. I’m delighted that this significant investment in the long-term future of the distillery is secured, preserving our rich heritage whilst ensuring we can meet the increasing demand for The GlenDronach at home and around the world .”
