Local MP Welcomes '£30M Vote of Confidence' in Glendronach

Published date : 29 July, 2022

Gordon MP Richard Thomson has welcomed the announcement by the owners of the GlenDronach Distillery, near Forgue, of a £30million investment in the facility. 

Owners Brown-Forman made the announcement today after a tripling of demand for GlenDronach globally over the past three years. 

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


Commenting, Richard Thomson MP said: 

“GlenDronach whisky has been a feature of the North-east since 1826 and I’m delighted that it has found a new popularity globally in the last few years. 

“This is a very welcome investment by owners Brown-Forman and, coupled with recent improvements to its visitor centre, is a real vote of confidence in the workforce and their product.  I look forward to paying a visit to learn more about the plans in the near future.”
