Glenrinnes: The latest distillery to open in Speyside, Scotland

Boasting 5,400 square-feet of space, Glenrinnes Distillery officially launched its inaugural products last month – Eight Lands Organic Speyside Gin and Eight Lands Organic Speyside Vodka.

Co-founded by Alex Christou and his step-father, Alasdair Locke, the duo has big plans for the Eight Lands range and hopes that in three years’ time, 70% of sales will be to international markets.

The name ‘Eight Lands’ was inspired by the peak of Ben Rinnes, which looks out across eight counties that can be seen on a clear day.

To celebrate the distillery’s opening, last month The Spirits Business was invited to Scotland to have a look around the newest Speyside spirits producer.
