Martin Dickie, who co-founded Scottish brewer BrewDog with James Watt, has a £213m (US$276m) holding in the company.

Earlier this year, BrewDog Distilling said it would be building its spirits portfolio with “further new additions over the rest of 2019 and beyond”. New expressions will include a spiced rum and a “disruptive” Scotch whisky. The distiller creates its products “from grain to glass”, using the wash from its beer production to create both white and brown spirits. As such, BrewDog claims to create only “pure bloodline” spirits.
