Magnum Unveils State-of-the-Art Production Facility in Fife

Magnum, the renowned Scottish drinks brand, has launched a state-of-the-art £1 million production and bottling centre for its Scotch malt whisky cream liqueur. This ambitious project, three years in the making, represents a significant milestone for the brand and the Scottish beverage industry.

The new facility, located in Kirkcaldy, Fife, is equipped with cutting-edge technology, including a dedicated cream vat and specialist equipment for rinsing, filling, capping, and labelling. 

With the capacity to produce 40 bottles of Magnum per minute, the centre is billed as the only global production and bottling site of its kind in Scotland. This purpose-built site consolidates all liquid and dry goods under one roof, minimising the brand’s carbon footprint and supporting six full-time skilled jobs in the region.

Magnum’s director stated that this is a truly significant milestone for their Scottish brand. They are now the only Scotch malt whisky cream liqueur exclusively crafted and bottled in Scotland. 

They went on to add that their new dedicated cream production facility in Fife, engineered solely for Magnum, can scale up as required. Innovation is at the heart of what they do, but always with provenance, premium ingredients, and packaging sustainability in their DNA.

The facility’s strategic location in the Mitchelston Industrial Estate offers logistical advantages, enhancing Magnum’s ability to distribute 135,000 litres of its cream liqueur across Scotland, the rest of the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and South Africa in 2024. 

This new capability allows the brand to produce its liqueurs with unprecedented flexibility and efficiency, ensuring timely delivery to various international markets.

The director also emphasised the unique position Magnum now holds as the only cream bottler in Scotland, saying that they can bottle what they want, when they want. This also opens up opportunities for innovation in the category, with potential future introductions of rum or tequila cream liqueurs. 

However, their current vision for Magnum remains uncompromising – to craft a premium cream liqueur containing the finest single malt Scotch whisky, and only single malt.

Magnum’s new production and bottling centre is being developed and managed by QAS Group, a supply chain provider that owns and operates the facility.

A representative at QAS Group added that they are really excited to be supporting Magnum as it makes its name as a truly iconic Scottish brand. They already have everything in place to get this premium product to market around the world.

In addition to the production capabilities, the new centre’s infrastructure has been designed with sustainability in mind, featuring energy-efficient systems and processes that reduce environmental impact. This commitment to sustainability is a cornerstone of Magnum’s operational philosophy.

Magnum’s focus on innovation extends beyond just its production methods. The brand is continuously exploring new packaging solutions that are both premium and environmentally friendly. 

This dedication to quality and sustainability ensures that Magnum products not only meet the highest standards but also appeal to the eco-conscious consumer.

In conclusion, Magnum’s new production and bottling centre in Kirkcaldy marks a new chapter for the brand, solidifying its place in the global market while staying true to its Scottish roots. 

With advanced facilities, a focus on sustainability, and a commitment to premium quality, Magnum is well-positioned to continue its growth and introduce exciting new products to consumers worldwide.
