The Glasgow-based spirits company Kyndal, was this week awarded the Royal Bank of Scotland Award For Excellence in Export.

The awards were established in 1990 to recognise outstanding achievement in the exporting performance of Scottish companies. The judges said: "Kyndal's award genuinely reflects the creative and innovative approach they've taken to a traditional manufactured product."

Formed in October 2001 after a management buy-out from its US owners, Kyndal exports brands such as Whyte and Mackay and The Dalmore to more than 100 countries worldwide.

Iain Gilchrist, Kyndal's sales director said: "Earlier this year the Scotch Whisky Association announced exports of Scotch had hit the billion bottle mark. At Kyndal, which has a 9% share of the global whisky market, we have been seeing year on year increases in our export figures with sales outside the UK now accounting for around 60% of total business.

 "It is extremely important we continue to support this growth and we've earmarked further investment during the coming year for our key brands in a number of international markets. I am delighted our export achievements have been recognised by this award."
