Questions & Responses

Q1. – “The Company receives a large proportion of its revenue from China and the USA, as well as the UK and Europe. Will the Company continue to expand into new markets, and where will the Board focus the business’s attention in the coming year?”

A – We have ongoing plans to continue our expansion into new markets, as well as development of our existing markets. For example, there was the recent successful launch of the new Franchise in South Korea, the establishment of a new Taiwan subsidiary which is due to launch in Q3 and new franchise agreements in Malaysia and Singapore. On top of this we will continue to focus on delivering exceptional whisky to our SMWS members across all markets, and the development of the J.G. Thomson range, which is now available in the USA.
