The Glenglassaugh Distillery Company has become a member of the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA).

The Glenglassaugh Distillery near Portsoy, Aberdeenshire was recently acquired by European investment house the Scaent Group and work is currently underway to re-open the facility for production later this year.

"At Glenglassaugh we believe that we have a unique opportunity to breathe life back into a hidden gem," said Glenglassaugh managing director Stuart Nickerson today (7 July). "The SWA is of vital importance to the whisky industry and we recognise the part they play in ensuring that brands like ours become part of Scotland's future whisky heritage."

Glenglassaugh, led by Nickerson, has recruited a new team including former manager Graham Eunson as distillery manager and whisky expert Ian Buxton as marketing consultant.

SWA spokesman David Williamson said: "That Scotch Whisky is to be distilled again at Glenglassaugh is good news for the industry. We are delighted Stuart and his team are going to play their part at industry level and welcome them as the SWA's 54th member company."
