WILLIAM Grant & Sons, the family-owned drinks company behind The Balvenie, Glenfiddich, and Hendrick’s brands, has confirmed that it is supporting the Better Together campaign.
In a statement, the company confirmed that it has provided donations to the campaign, which encourages a ‘no’ vote in September’s independence referendum.
Though it wouldn’t confirm a figure, reports suggest the company has donated in the region of £100,000 so far.
“We support the stance of the SWA (Scotch Whisky Association) over independence and would refer you to their recent statement that the Scotch whisky industry enjoys substantial support from the UK government and its worldwide embassy network and from lack of trade barriers from within the EU,” said the statement.
“The SWA believes that the risk of losing this could severely damage our industry.”
