UK: Bruichladdich reports buoyant 2005
Scotch whisky distiller Bruichladdich said today (5 May) that it saw earnings more than double in 2005.
The company posted annual profits of GBP403,000 (US$749,478) and said it had become the fourth-largest malt in Russia.
Chairman Sir John Mactaggart said: "This is another encouraging performance. Bruichladdich punches above it's weight in a sector dominated by multinationals."
The Islay distiller was reopened in 2001 after it was bought from Jim Beam Brands - now Beam Global Wine & Spirits - for GBP7.5m.
Sir John added: "Our simple, honest message of natural whisky from barley to bottle is hitting home - not only in the UK but Russia too where we are the fourth-largest single malt."
