Warrington’s Morris & Spottiswood creates new global HQ for Famous Grouse maker
North West fit-out contractor Morris & Spottiswood has completed work on a new international headquarters for spirits group Edrington.
The Warrington-based firm created modern workspace for Edrington at 100 Queen Street in Glasgow, including offices, executive rooms and a technical tasting and sampling area.
The drinks company’s new base, located near Royal Exchange Square, also houses a working bar to showcase its portfolio of brands.
Edrington is the owner of Scotch whisky and spirit brands such as The Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark, The Macallan, The Glenrothes, Brugal Rum, Snow Leopard Vodka and Highland Park.
Around 150 staff are now based at 100 Queen Street, including the executive board, finance, legal and corporate affairs teams, in addition to senior members of Edrington’s global operations, HR and business technology divisions.
Gordon Clyne, Morris & Spottiswood’s operations director, said: “We are delighted to have completed this project for one of Scotland’s great whisky producers, helping develop a new headquarters for what is a truly international business.
“100 Queen Street is a fantastic location in Glasgow and our mission was to deliver a fitting working environment for Edrington’s international team.”
Edrington chief exec Ian Curle commented: “Our new headquarters brings Edrington’s board and its business units together in the heart of the city where the business was first created in 1861.
“100 Queen Street is a fantastic location for the Edrington team as we take the business to the next phase of its international growth.”
