Edrington unveils new HQ

14 September, 2016

Edrington, has announced the location of its new international headquarters: 100 Queen Street, by Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square.

In April, the company, which makes or distributes spirits brands, such as The Famous Grouse, The Macallan, Highland Park, Cutty Sark, Brugal rum and Snow Leopard vodka, announced its plans to move to a central Glasgow HQ.

The building, owned by Esson Properties, is currently undergoing a £8.25 million renovation, that includes the addition of two new floors. The move is due to take place in spring 2017, when Edrington will occupy the top four floors.

The company says the office will bring Edrington’s board and its business units into a single location. The company expects around 130 people to be based at 100 Queen Street.

Ian Curle, Edrington’s chief executive said: “Bringing together our leadership and business units in a central Glasgow location will help ensure that the business is in the best possible shape to deliver long term growth. It will improve international connections and bring us close to the creative and digital skills necessary to grow our business.”
