They have developed Balvenie and they have the 4th largest selling blended whisky in the world. They put a lot of money into the communities where they are located (Dufftown, Girvan and Motherwell) and they have retained high employment in these areas. I have to put them No 1
Very good point! It's not just about the whisky a distillery produces, it is also about the community, the tradition etc etc.
Take Glenmorangie PLC for example, who would have bought Ardbeg with all the stock plus spend £1.4m to get it back in to production?
It should really be asking, which company do you respect the most as the majority are owned by large companies
