International Track 200

This drink-maker’s brands include Whitley Neill gin, Dead Man’s Fingers spiced rum and JJ Whitley vodka, produced in the firm’s new £5 million distillery in St Petersburg. Led by chief executive Stewart Hainsworth, 52, growth in South Africa, Russia and Australia helped overseas sales reach £145.9 million in the year to June 2020. The impact of Covid-19 and the abolition of wine duty dilution has resulted in the closure of its Liverpool bottling plant. Its headquarters is now in London.
