William Grant and Sons whisky distillery – 48th 

The owners of the William Grant and Sons whisky distillery have joined the ranks of billionaires. The Grant and Gordon families wealth increased by £450m to £1.4billion, putting them in 48th place.

Much of this rise in profits is because of rising sales in export markets such as China.

The family had some bad news last month, when Janet Sheed Roberts, grand-daughter of William Grant and Scotland’s oldest lady died aged 110.
