Glasgow Whisky Purchases Tromie Mills Distillery In Speyside

By Hannah Kanik / May 8, 2021

Glasgow Whisky is expanding its global business. The brand recently purchased Tromie Mills Distillery Limited, which owns one of the most picturesque distillery sites in Scotland. The facility, located in the Cairngorms National Park, was built as a contemporary, environmentally sustainable and energy efficient distillery. The new owners committed to remain sympathetic to the heritage of the site and maintain the traditional and established methods of distilling a quality single malt Scotch whisky

The current tenant, Speyside Distillers, will operate from the Drumguish site until their lease expires in 2025. Speyside announced its own plans to build a distillery earlier this year.  The refurbishment by Glasgow Whiskey will start in Spring 2025 and work with suppliers from the local Speyside area.

Since 2007, Glasgow Whisky has worked to establish itself with bulk exports and branded cased sales. The company is now venturing to purchase its first distillery site, and owners Graham Taylor and Stuart Hendry, with more than 70 combined years of industry experience between them, are excited to see what happens next.

“The addition of a distillery in Drumguish is an exciting and natural progression as we continue to build for the future,” Taylor said in a prepared statement. “Since our launch in 2007, we have seen significant growth in all areas of our Scotch whisky brands and products across the globe. The distillery will enable us to add to our portfolio and continue to supply our clients around the world with quality Scotch whisky.”

“Our plans for the distillery will give us the opportunity to celebrate an established and known site, whilst bringing it into the 21st century in terms of distilling innovation, sustainability and production methods,” Hendry added. “We are extremely excited to have this opportunity to evolve our business.”
