Bladnoch stängt och till försäljning


Recommended Posts

Tråkiga nyheter, och lite oväntade i dessa boomande tider.

 

 

 

David Driscoll, K&L Wine:

 

I haven't seen any mention of it online, but Bladnoch distillery is no longer in the hands of the Armstrong brothers. I heard from both Raymond and Colin on Friday and they've allowed a liquidator to come in and take control of the company. We were set for our appointment Tuesday to select new casks, but we're not sure if the new director is on board with the idea yet. That remains up in the air at the moment.

 

 

 

(...) I first came across Bladnoch in May 1994, so it's nearly twenty years ago. I would have liked to have seen the distillery's bi-centenary in 2017 but that wasn't to be. My time at Bladnoch resulted in me getting a son in law from Glasgow and a daughter in law from Wigtown who has provided me with a Scottish grandson. I've also made friends all around the world so you can't say anything bad about that. The end wasn't the nicest but you can't have everything.

Raymond

 

 

Obviously I'm hopeful that the jobs of our staff will be unaffected but I can appreciate that there is stress. Everything to do with the Company is entirely in the hands of the Receiver to the extent that at some stage I hope to be allowed to collect my old cars, rowing boat and canoes. The receivers job is to get the best price for everything belonging to the company (but not my cars etc)

Tydligen var de fyra ägarna oense, två ville sälja och två ville inte sälja. Så när de inte hittade någon att köpa ut de två, och inte hade råd att göra det själva, blev det en tvist som jag tror fick lösas i rätten. Nu är grindarna låsta och ingen har tillträde till destilleriet i väntan på att tredje part reder ut vem som äger vad, värderar och hittar en köpare.

 

Så har jag uppfattat det hela, om någon besitter mer info fyll gärna på.

Det behöver vi nog inte oroa oss för, med tanke på hur marknaden ser ut så lär intressenterna slåss om att ta över det.

Fast troligen inte så som Raymond (och Colin) vill driva det...

...för i så fall borde det varit lätt att få in medfinansiärer att köpa ut övriga.

Och det är ju lite synd...
