Routledge is to join the distillery, which restarted production in December 2008, with the responsibility of developing Glenglassaugh’s existing importer, distributor, wholesaler and retailer relationships and growing new business.
He joins from his current role as UK retail manager for Duncan Taylor & Co of Huntly. Previously, he spent 15 years with Gordon & MacPhail of Elgin.
Glenglassaugh MD Stuart Nickerson said: “I anticipate that Ronnie’s huge experience and knowledge of the single malt market will prove of immense value in the next stage of our development of our brands. He will also bring his experience and expertise in whisky retailing to Glenglassaugh and maximise the value of our recently-launched online shop.”
Consultant Ian Buxton will relinquish his part-time strategic marketing role at the end of April, after two years working with the company.
