Grant and Sharp end partnership

08 February, 2008

The boss of boutique Scottish beer producer Innis & Gunn has bought out his joint venture partner in the business, the Scotch whisky producer William Grant.

Dougal Sharp and Grant formed the company in 2003, with the distiller as the majority shareholder. Grant will continue to provide "oak maturation services" for the Innis & Gunn range.

Sharp continues as managing director with his father Russell, founder of the Caledonian Brewery, as a director.

Sharp said: "William Grant could not have been more supportive from day one, and we have bought the business at a time of impressive growth both at home and overseas."
