Sale of Spencerfield Spirit Company to Ian MacLeod Distillers

Deal typeM&A

Spencerfield Spirit Company Limited owns a portfolio of gin and whisky brands and operates gin distilleries with brands including 'Edinburgh Gin', 'Sheep Dip', 'Pigs Nose' and 'The Feathery.' BDO assisted and advised the vendors in completing the sale of 100% of the share capital to Scottish based whisky distillery Ian MacLeod Distillers Limited.                       

“We entered this process with excitement but also some trepidation! We had spent over ten years building the business to the stage where we had a stable of high quality premium spirits brands. We put great trust in BDO to help us crystallise that value.

BDO ran a very high quality and efficient sell-side process. Their attention to detail and understanding of buyer dynamics ensured that we remained a step ahead throughout the process and ultimately delivered a great result for the family shareholders.

It was a pleasure to work with the BDO team.”
