Recession continues to hit Speymalt
The worldwide recession is continuing to hit profits at Speymalt Whisky Distributors.
The firm, which trades as Elgin-based Gordon and MacPhail and owns Benromach distillery at Forres, said yesterday that pre-tax profits for the year to February 2009 were just under £698,000.
This compared with £1.349million for the previous 12 months, however, the latest profits were affected by more than £272,000 of repairs to the stonework of the company’s retail premises in South Street, Elgin, built in 1895.
