Scottish Collie History

The establishment of Strathclyde Business Park at Bellshill, near Motherwell, in the early 1990s allowed William Grant & Sons Ltd to create a large blending and bottling facility.

Quality Spirits International Ltd, a subsidiary of William Grant & Sons, was incorporated in 1995 to produce a number of Scotch whisky brands from the Bellshill facility, one of which was Scottish Collie.

QSI aims to become ‘the leading international supplier of private label Scotch whisky’. With a turnover of £42m in 2015, it is one of the largest companies operating in this field.
