Co-op deal for distillers

TWO Scottish whisky distilleries have secured new listings with the Co-op.

Aberdeenshire-based Esker Spirits, which produces a range of gins, and Isle of Bute Gin Company have secured distribution deals with the multiple retailer.

Kevin Buchan, local sourcing buying manager for Scotland at the Co-op said: “We are delighted to be working closely with local distillers, Co-op is all about connecting communities, making a difference and creating value locally, and our work to celebrate and support local suppliers and our great Scottish food and drink is a cornerstone of this approach.”
