Scottish Enterprise invests
Black Wolf raises £200,000 for bottling line
It will be used to contract bottle for other small to medium sized brewers and drinks manufacturers. The line will be in operation this month.
The project is going ahead thanks to the assistance of a £45,000 grant from Scottish Enterprise.
Former Scotsman Publications managing director Andrew Richardson, now a director at Black Wolf, said: “This is a big investment for us which will transform our business.
“It will give us far greater flexibility so that we can produce different speciality beers, or beers to celebrate big events like the Olympics, or indeed for customers who want their own beer. We also intend to use this facility to bottle for others in the drinks industry.
“I should like to thank Scottish Enterprise for their support which has enabled this project to take place.”
Black Wolf Brewery is based in Throsk, near Stirling and produces a range of beers in cask, keg and bottle, which are sold throughout Scotland and are exported around the world. It went through a successful re-branding in 2014. Black Wolf Brewery is owned by VC2 Brands, which owns a portfolio of premium alcoholic drinks.
