Glen Scotia announces partners with Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards has unveiled Glen Scotia single malt whisky as its first Entrepreneurial Spirit Partner.

The scotch whisky brand, owned by Loch Lomond Group, is one of the few Campbeltown distilleries to have maintained production from the heady days of the 1830s when the region was known as the whisky capital of the world.

The brand continues to enjoy success, now backed by centuries of craftsmanship and experience and its award-winning whiskies are renowned for their distinctive maritime influence and Campbeltown character.

The partnership will see Glen Scotia sponsor the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award. GBEA and Glen Scotia will also recognise and reward a business owner who has shown particular entrepreneurial spirit each month.

Founded in 2013, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the United Kingdom. Central to its ethos is being more than just Ďan awards ceremonyí Ė itís a sense of community, and a thriving ecosystem of support all year round that provide opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: "Iím delighted to announce this new and unique partnership with Glen Scotia. It has an incredibly long and inspiring entrepreneurial journey behind it, and Iím thrilled they share our passion for supporting entrepreneurs and celebrating their achievements."

John Grieveson, Chief Marketing Officer at Glen Scotia, said: "The early entrepreneurial spirit shown by our founders back in 1832 is embedded in Glen Scotiaís DNA. Back then, our founders, along with many others at the time, rode the wave of entrepreneurialism seen in Campbeltown in the early 1800s, harnessing the abundance of natural resources needed to produce quality Scotch Whisky, as well as new technology including steam navigation which meant that whisky could be shipped directly to Glasgow in under nine hours from what is still one of the most remote parts of Scotlandís mainland.

"Weíre proud to be one of the three surviving distilleries from this boom-town era, which has only been achieved by our ability to innovate and adapt the business over the centuries. Our new partnership with the GBEA is therefore very fitting, and we are very much looking forward to working with them to support the new generation of British entrepreneurs."

You will find the the current Glen Scotia whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
