Five printing experts based in Scotland have launched a new premium spirit labelling production business called Spirit Label Solutions in response to the growing demand from producers of increasingly popular craft whisky and gins. 

Collectively the founders have over 100 years of experience within the print sector and have set up the company in order to bring a bespoke approach to label production.

The company has been established with an investment of £5m for the state-of-the-art facility and production line which is based in a recently refurbished unit in Westway at Glasgow airport. 

The facility is 15,113sq ft and based in Scotland’s largest fully enclosed industrial park which has links to Glasgow Airport and the city centre. 

Spirit Label Solutions will seek to produce fully bespoke digitally printed labels including embellishments, foiling, tube wraps, embossing, and packaging design.

The company has been founded by chief executive officer Alex Mulvenny, managing director Tom Lightbody, and directors Finlay McLachlan, Jamie Thomson, and Chris Crockert. 
Mulvenny says: “Our primary focus is on delivering a high-quality label printing service to our clients. With extensive experience in premium spirits labelling, our leadership team brings over a century of collective industry experience.

“Our ethos is simple, yet powerful: ‘Bring Digital Agility to the Scotch Whisky Industry’ and we aspire to be the most customer-centric partner in our industry.”

The company secured a long-term lease agreement with Canmoor, a developer and asset management business. 

Gregor King, Canmoor asset manager at Westway, adds: “Westway at Glasgow Airport remains one of Scotland's top-performing locations, and the pre-let of one of our newly refurbished units to Spirit Label Solutions is another positive boost for the park.

“The continued success of Westway reflects our strategic focus on investing to improve existing stock while speculatively developing new, best-in-class industrial space, which is receiving a very positive reaction among potential occupiers in the Scottish market."
