Perhaps a sign of a brighter future ahead for travellers and the badly hit whisky travel retail sector which is a big part of William Grant & Sons business model, the company has announced the appointment of David Wilson as Managing Director Global Travel Retail. He joins the company from his current position as Managing Director Quality Spirits International (QSI), the specialist private label drinks company of William Grants & Sons, a position he has held for the last 2 years.

Wilson is no newcomer to global travel retail having spent many years in the industry and latterly as Managing Director Global Travel Retail with Beam Suntory, which he led from 2014 before joining QSI in August 2019.

Wilson commented: "I am delighted to be joining William Grant & Sons and returning to the important and dynamic travel retail business. William Grant & Sons has an outstanding portfolio of brands, including Glenfiddich – the number one single malt Scotch whisky in the world. It has been an incredibly difficult time for travel retail recently, but I very much look forward to working with the team and reconnecting with many GTR colleagues and friends globally, as we work hard together, to secure a successful future for all."

Doug Bagley, Chief Commercial Officer for William Grants & Sons adds: "David brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the team and will be a huge asset as we continue to invest in what we see as a vital channel for our brand portfolio. The market is still very tough, but we’re staying positive and optimistic for Global Travel Retail and our future within it."

Alongside Glenfiddich, key William Grant & Sons brands available in global travel retail include The Balvenie Scotch single malt whisky, Hendricks gin, Grant’s, Tullamore DEW Irish whiskey, Monkey Shoulder Scotch blended malt whisky, Sailor Jerry rum and Drambuie Scotch whisky liqueur.

You will find the William Grants current whisky portfolio available from specialist online whisky retailers  such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
