Edrington’s culture sets us apart, powered by great people and exceptional brands. We are a global company united by shared values, encouraging our colleagues to simplify, focus and challenge.

The strength that comes from that sense of purpose, our outstanding people, and the way they live and breathe the company’s values, provides our foundation. Our great people have brought our ethos of ‘giving more’ to life by looking for ways to support their communities all over the world.

Our Values

Giving. Respect. Integrity. Excellence. 

These were the words chosen by our employees when we asked them to tell us what makes Edrington a special company. These principles govern the way we do business and drive our success, enabling us to give more to society. 


Our History

Edrington’s success stems from a heritage of exceptional people, dedicated to giving, respect, integrity and excellence.

The origins of the company stretch back to the mid-nineteenth century, when William Robertson founded the Robertson & Baxter company in Glasgow.

Giving More

The value of giving that lies at the core of Edrington’s company history is something that every employee cherishes and is proud of. 

Our principal shareholder The Robertson Trust is the country's largest independent grant-making trust. It gives £20 million a year to charities in Scotland.



Edrington was created to be a company that makes a positive contribution to the communities where we live and work. We have worked for more than 160 years to build a responsible and sustainable business that respects the environment around us. 

We are working hard to embed sustainability across our entire business. We depend on our people, our suppliers and partners as the climate crisis demands action from us all.
