James Watt, along with Dickie, has steered BrewDog to become a global phenomenon. In April last year, TSG Consumer Partners bought a 23% stake in the company for £213m, valuing BrewDog at £1bn. The transaction was “designed to deliver long-term capital with a 10-year time horizon”.

It will be interesting to see if Lone Wolf has the same potential in the spirits world.
