Diageo, the world’s leading premium drinks company, has opened the doors of its new £40 million distillery in Speyside, Scotland. The Roseisle distillery is the first malt distillery of scale to be opened in Scotland in over 30 years and has been built in response to the high demand for Scotch whisky brands such as Johnnie Walker and Buchanan’s around the world.

The award-winning distillery will be formally opened by Diageo chief executive Paul Walsh on October 11th. The new distillery combines centuries of accumulated distilling knowledge and expertise with cutting-edge design and technology, to produce quality spirit for Diageo’s brands.

The £40 million investment in Roseisle is part of a capital investment programme in Scotland which has totalled £600 million over the past six fiscal years and has focused on building high quality capacity to meet growing international demand for Diageo’s iconic brands.
