Dunbartonshire-based Loch Lomond Distillery Company has reported a small fall in profits for the last financial year, despite turnover rising by nearly half a million pounds.
Turnover at the drinks and bottling company rose from £17.8 million to £18.3 million in the year to end March 2011.
During the same period, pre-tax profits fell to below £300,000 compared to over £360,000 in the previous year, reports The Herald newspaper.
The company stated in their annual report: “2011 proved to be a profitable year and the directors are happy with the performance of the company and group. With continuous investment in plant and machinery at the site the company is looking to further improve the margin in future years.”
The company produces up to 43 million bottles a year, under its Loch Lomond malt and Scots Earl blend brands.
