Glasgow Whisky, has today announced that it has acquired Tromie Mills Distillery Limited, as part of plans to expand its global whisky business.
The distillery site at Drumguish, Kingussie, which is renowned as one of the most picturesque in Scotland, is currently home to Speyside Distillers, who will continue to operate from the site until their lease expires in Spring 2025.

Located in the Cairngorms National Park, the new owners have undertaken to commit significant investment to build a contemporary, more environmentally sustainable and energy efficient distillery, whilst remaining sympathetic to the heritage of the site and maintaining the traditional and established methods of distilling quality single malt Scotch whisky.
Since being founded in 2007, Glasgow Whisky has established influential global credentials in both bulk exports and branded cased sales. As the company now ventures into purchasing its first distillery site, owners Graham Taylor and Stuart Hendry – who have over 70 years of combined industry experience – are delighted at how the business is evolving.
Commenting on the news, Graham Taylor, said: "The addition of a distillery in Drumguish is an exciting and natural progression as we continue to build for the future. Since our launch in 2007, we have seen significant growth in all areas of our Scotch whisky brands and products across the globe. The distillery will enable us to add to our portfolio and continue to supply our clients around the world with quality Scotch whisky.”
The refurbishment by Glasgow Whisky will start in the Spring of 2025, and will involve suppliers from the local Speyside area.
