Currently, the whisky retailer has eight stores in Scotland, including the recent addition of two new outlets in the heart of Edinburgh. It is aiming to open a further 20 stores within the next three years, with the majority to be located south of the border.
Executive chairman Ian Bankier said: “There is a growing appreciation of malt whisky across the UK but especially in England where we believe there is a significant under-developed market.
“We will plug that gap by opening in the main out-of-town shopping centres as well as in high streets across the UK.”
The existing shops, the first of which was opened in Edinburgh in 1992, are currently getting a revamp to give a fresher, younger feel to suit market trends.
Bankier said: “Scotch whisky is a cosmopolitan drink enjoyed by people of all ages and from all nations. Here in the UK, single malts are fast becoming trendy. We want our stores to reflect that.”
