6 June 2012
The premium drinks business has announced plans to invest over £1billion in Scotch whisky production over the next five years, creating over 850 jobs in the process.
Diageo will be investing in a major new malt distillery, alongside a program of major expansion at a number of Diageo’s existing distilleries with the possibility of a second distillery.
The company also plans to invest in substantial new warehousing capacity to house the millions of additional litres of Scotch whisky which the investment will produce.
The expansion plans would increase its Scotch production capacity between 30 and 40% and add more than 100 new jobs at the company.
It is also expected the investment will create an average of 250 construction jobs for each year of the investment period and in wider Scottish economy there will be a knock on effect which will generate around 500 further jobs.
The group, which is the 3rd largest producer of Scotch whisky with around a third of the market, said its plans had achieved worldwide growth over recent years led by its top Johnnie Walker brand.
Diageo reported 50% growth in net sales of its Scotch brands with total net sales approaching £3bn this financial year.
