Isle of Skye Brewing Company has bought Black Wolf Brewery and its beer brands from VC2 Brands which will now focus on its fast-growing Boë Gin brand.
FDMB understands that the two businesses will retain current operations in Uig and Throsk, near Stirling, which have a combined staff of 21. The move will provide the Skye-based firm with its own bottling facilities for the first time.
FDMB also understands that that the six-figure deal means the business can beef up its expansion south of the Border and grow further into Europe and the US.
Kenny Webster, Managing Director of Isle of Skye Brewing Company, said: “The purchase of Black Wolf Brewery from our friends at VC2 Brands is a hugely positive move for both businesses.
“For Skye Brewing in particular, by having our own owned bottling facilities, we’ll be able to meet current growth demands and look at additional opportunities.
“Skye Brewing has gone from strength to strength since the first brew back in 1995. We look forward to bringing a taste of the island to more people as we increase production thanks to the new deal.”
