Gruppo Campari intends to build a new bottling plant next to its Glen Grant distillery, reflecting strong global demand for Scotch whisky.

A Campari spokesperson confirmed today (1 December) that the Italy-based drinks group plans to build the bottling plant. She declined to give further details, such as the cost or size of the plant.

News of the plan emerged this week after local politicians gave their blessing to the move, which has yet to receive planning approval. UK Member of Parliament Angus Robertson said: "If approved, this planned new facility will mean a jobs boost, both in construction and in running the facility, when it is expected to be completed in 2013."

The local member of the Scottish Parliament, Richard Lochhead, said: "Campari's commitment to the Glen Grant brand is clearly demonstrated by their investment in the site since they purchased the distillery." The bottling plant will be based at Rothes, alongside the Glen Grant distillery. 

Scotch whisky has enjoyed strong export growth in value terms over the past couple of years, despite economic uncertainty in some key western markets. For the first nine months of 2011, sales of Glen Grant rose by 7.7% in value, according to Campari's nine-month results statement
