A brewery based on the Isle of Skye has received a £116,000 grant from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to boost exports.
Overall, the Isle of Skye Brewing Company intends to spend £450,000 to expand production and re-brand their products to widen their appeal to a global audience and improve export performance.
The Operations Director said: “Our new expansion plan means that we are now revisiting export markets where we have previously sold our beers such as USA, Canada, Finland, Switzerland, and Japan.
“This has been aided by the Smart Exporter programme delivered by HIE – an excellent programme which we found to be informative and very beneficial.
“Export markets are to the fore in our business plan, which will double our production capacity in the next four years. It’s an incredible journey and we are set to export 20% of all production in the next three years.”
