Glen Scotia Whisky invites Scottish firms to enter Great British Entrepreneur Awards
Glen Scotia Single Malt Whisky is encouraging Scottish businesses to enter the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, which opens for entries from today (March 15).
Earlier this year, Glen Scotia revealed a new partnership with the awards, which acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the UK, in celebration of the entrepreneurial, innovative spirit of its founders. Now, the whisky brand is encouraging like-minded business leaders in Scotland to champion their ventures on a national stage.
The scotch whisky brand, owned by Loch Lomond Group, is one of the last 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. Glen Scotia continues to enjoy success, now backed by almost two centuries of craftsmanship and experience, and its award-winning whiskies are renowned for their distinctive maritime influence and Campbeltown character.
To mark the partnership with the Great British Entrepreneur Awards (GBEA), which was founded in 2013 and includes the founders of Cambridge Satchel Company and Social Chain amongst its community, Glen Scotia is sponsoring the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award at the regional and national ceremonies. Winners in this category will be given their very own, limited edition GBEA bottle of Glen Scotia 15 Year Old whisky, with a bespoke Glen Scotia 18 Year Old presented to all national winners to mark their achievement.
John Grieveson, Chief Marketing Officer at Glen Scotia, said: “As beneficiaries of the early entrepreneurial spirit shown by our founders back in 1832, we want to celebrate the very best in Scottish business.
“The Great British Entrepreneur Awards provides the perfect platform for up-and-coming Scottish businesses to share their story at a national level and join an engaged community of alumni and judges which features some of the most exciting companies in the UK. We’re pleased to be able to support this year’s event and foster the innovative spirit shown by our predecessors.”
Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “When we set up the awards back in 2013, our aim was to establish a community of like-minded businesspeople in the UK that could learn from one another.
“It’s great to see that Glen Scotia recognises the value of entrepreneurship and innovative thinking, which are embedded in its DNA. We’re incredibly excited to be able to open entries for this year’s regional events, and can’t wait to see which businesses will share their stories.”
