A 12% rise in sales of Bowmore single malt has helped Morrison Bowmore Distillers increase its profits.

The group has reported a 7% increase in pre-tax profit to £3.8 million in 2009, on turnover 6% ahead at £39.3 million. There was also a 2% rise in sales of Auchentoshan.

Sales of Suntory’s Yamazaki and Hakushu Japanese whiskies, which Morrison Bowmore handles in the UK and the rest of Europe, grew “rapidly”, said the company.
