Whisky giant William Grant & Sons have donated £100,000 to the Better Together campaign, it has been reported.

The distiller, which owns the Glenfiddich, Balvenie Distillery and Girvan Grain Distilleries, said that Scottish whisky industry as a whole enjoyed ‘substantial support’ from the UK Government.

In a statement, William Grant and Sons Holdings Limited said: “We can confirm that the company has made these donations.

“We support the stance of the SWA over independence and would refer you to their recent statement that the Scotch whisky industry enjoys substantial support from the UK government and its worldwide embassy network and from lack of trade barriers within the EU.”
