Hendrick’s Gin Unveils £13-Million Distillery ExpansionOctober 1, 2018
William Grant & Sons has invested £13 million ($17m) to double capacity at its Hendrick’s gin distillery in Girvan, Scotland. The expanded distillery includes two new still houses—containing Hendrick’s six stills—and, according to the company, will help the brand meet rising global demand while enhancing its innovation pipeline. William Grant says the move will offer master distiller Lesley Gracie more resources with which to develop new Hendrick’s innovations looking forward. The upgraded facility also includes a laboratory, gin bar, flavor library, and lecture theater. Hendricks grew 8.5% to 370,000 cases in the U.S. market last year, according to Impact Databank. Globally, the brand jumped 21% to 953,000 cases in 2017.—Daniel MarstellerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
