Our Values

Edrington's ownership model is unique in its industry. The company's principal shareholder is The Robertson Trust, which was established in 1961 by the three Robertson sisters, who donated their shares in the businesses founded by their grandfather.

Elspeth, Agnes and Ethel Robertson wished to ensure that the family business remained active and independent, and that it would continue to give support they had given to charities.

The Robertson Trust uses its dividends from Edrington to improve the quality of life and realise the potential of people and communities in Scotland. To date, it has given more than £263 million to charities in Scotland and it is now the country's largest independent grant-making trust.

Our business model underpinned by the Edrington values of giving, integrity, excellence and respect.

Great People

Edrington encourages its employees to champion charitable cause they feel truly passionate about, helping them raise funds and meet personal goals.

Every employee is given three days a year paid leave to work for a charity making a difference in their community.

When our employees raise funds for a charity, Edrington matches those funds to double the value. The Robertson Trust also matches funds raised for charities in Scotland, thereby turning every £1 into £3.
