Scotland’s largest independent brewery launched an £18m crowdfunding appeal in America in February, to finance a brewhouse and network of brewpubs across the country. The craft beer company exports to more than 50 countries and has opened bars as far afield as Brazil and Japan. Its founders are James Watt and Martin Dickie, both 33. Note: profits are cited before depreciation and amortisation and were estimated at £5.5m. Following the close of research this was revised to £4.9m, marginally down on the year before.
