Beam Global Spirits & Wine has announced the appointment of a new distillery manager for its Laphroaig distillery.

John Campbell, 35, becomes the youngest distiller on the island of Islay, where the distillery is based.

Campbell has been with Laphroaig since 1994. He has also worked at other distilleries previously owned by Allied Domecq including Tormore, Miltonduff and Ardmore, the latter of which now forms part of the Beam group. In July 2001, he returned from Speyside to take up the post of brewer at Laphroaig.

"The role of managing this truly unique distillery was nothing but a dream ten years ago and today it has become a reality," Campbell said. "I feel humbled by the great names who have gone before me."

Beam Global Spirits & Wine is the new name for Fortune Brands' wine and spirits portfolio around the world.
