Some of the world’s finest whiskies are made in stills built by this Scottish company. Its distillery pots produce famous Speyside malts, as well as rum in Jamaica, tequila in Mexico and bourbon in the US. Forsyths also manufactures oil and gas equipment for energy giants such as BP and Statoil. The family-run firm, led by Richard Forsyth, 63, and his son Richard E Forsyth, 35, generated exports of £6.5m last year.
