Description

Rutherford Cross is delighted to be working again with Loch Lomond Group on a retained basis to appoint a Commercial Finance Analyst.

The Company

The Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest and rarest Scotch Whiskies in the world. Its heritage is amongst the oldest in the industry. The Group has gone through a significant period of growth since 2014 and following the recent acquisition by Hillhouse Capital Management, a global investment firm with a focus on innovative businesses in growth industries, the business has ambitious plans.

The company has invested significantly in growing its portfolio of brands, distillery and bottling infrastructure, global distribution platform, and management team. The business now generates about 70% of its revenue from more than 100 international markets, versus less than 10% in 2014. 

Teaming up with Hillhouse offers a strong partner for the business to further develop its international presence, particularly in Asia where whisky has become increasingly popular in recent years, and a market where Hillhouse has deep knowledge and strong business relationships.

The portfolio includes Loch Lomond Single Malt, which is distilled and matured close by the “bonnie banks” and Glen Scotia, a Campbelltown malt from the Victorian “whisky capital of the world”, as well as several high-quality blends. Each is a fine example of its region and style, redolent of the landscape and history which has shaped Scotland’s unique spirit.
