Profits rise at Bruichladdich

27 April, 2012

Islay’s Bruichladdich distillery has boosted its operating profits by 19.6% to £1.4 million, it has announced in its latest results.

The preliminary figures, for the year to December 31, showed turnover up 24.1% to £8.7 million, and earnings before interest, depreciation, tax and goodwill up 16.3% to £1.7 million.

The Botanist gin, Laddie 10 – the distillery’s first 10 Year Old bottling since it reopened in 2001, and a new website all contributed to the growth.

This summer the distillery plans to release the world’s most peated whisky, Octomore 10 Year Old, and Bruichladdich Bere, which it calls “the original viking’s whisky”.

Bruichladdich has continued to make “encouraging progress” in the first quarter of 2012, according to sales director Douglas Taylor.
