"The Glengoyne travel retail exclusive products, Glengoyne Burnfoot and Glengoyne 14 Years Old spearhead this growth with listings in the majority of the major travel retail outlets in Greater Europe. Smokehead Extra Rare and Extra Black 18 Years Old Islay malts support this development through their unique and contemporary packaging.

 

"Asia remains a key development target and as part of the next phase of our long term plan additional resources will be used to improve on the distribution following successes with major travel retail operators in both Malaysia and Taiwan.�
