Keiller left on 1 October, according to the filing

Morrison Bowmore Distillers' chief executive, Mike Keiller, has left the company in the wake of its integration into Beam Suntory Inc.

The company announced his departure in a filing with Companies House on Monday. Keiller, who had been with the Bowmore Scotch owner since 2000, left on 1 October, the filing stated. It is not immediately clear who will replace Keiller, or whether he will be replaced.

Morrison Bowmore or Beam Suntory have yet to respond to a request for comment.

Morrison Bowmore is owned by Suntory Holdings and was previously operated by subsidiary Suntory Liquors. However, this month Suntory Liquors hived off its beer business and placed the leftover spirits brands, including Morrison Bowmore, under the control of Beam Suntory

Beam Suntory was created after Suntory Holdings bought Beam Inc for US$16bn this year.
