Rutherford Cross retained by The North British Distillery to appoint a Finance Manager

A new vacancy has arisen within The North British Distillery, representing an excellent opportunity to join their team based in Muirhall. This role offers a flexible working approach and the ability to further your career within a well-established business.

The North British Distillery was established in 1885 and has been trading in Edinburgh since 1887. The company is a distillation and maturation business selling grain spirit – the base for blended whisky – and its by-products.

Significant quantities of North British grain whisky are incorporated in many well-known blended brands. The production of grain spirit also creates valuable by-products which are sold on to other sectors.

At the turn of the 20th century, the company sold its maltings and warehousing sites at Slateford Road and Westfield Road. It now operates on two sites, with much of its maturation warehousing concentrated at Muirhall in West Lothian. North British is now owned as a joint venture between Diageo plc and The Edrington Group.

Whilst it took just over 100 years for North British to produce 1.5 billion litres of alcohol, modernisation enabled the company to reach the 2 billion litres milestone just ten years later in 2008 and achieved 2.5 billion in 2015.
