Our Manufacturing teams work around the world across all five of our premium categories: Scotch, Beer, Baileys, Spirits, and Tequila. As part of the team, you’ll be responsible for creating and packaging our products to the highest standards in a safe, efficient, and sustainable way.
Scotland is the home to our diverse range of Scotch whiskies. In Scotland, Distilling is responsible for producing over 30 million cases of our iconic Scotch whiskies, such as Johnnie Walker, J&B, and Bell’s, every year. Distilling also produces 14 million cases of white spirits annually—including Smirnoff vodka, Tanqueray gin, and Gordon’s gin—as well as over three million cases of other spirits and ready-to-drink brands.
Across Scotland, there are 28 Scotch whisky malt distilleries located in the Highlands, Speyside, Islay, and Lowlands, as well as one grain Scotch whisky distillery. There are also ten main warehousing sites that are housing our maturing stocks of Scotch whisky, supported by our state-of-the-art cooperage and coppersmiths.
Our packaging site in Leven is the largest spirits bottling operation in Europe. Leven, alongside Shieldhall, packages a huge volume of Scotch malt whiskies, white spirits, and ready-to-drink brands to supply over 180 countries around the world.
Ireland is where the world's supply of Baileys comes from. We have two production sites here: one in Dublin and one in Belfast. Over 6.7 million cases of Baileys Original and Baileys Flavours leave the gates of these two Integrated Supply Chain (ISC) sites every year, destined for countries worldwide.
We also have our brewing operations in Ireland, located at Runcorn and Guinness Dublin. These breweries brew and ship the Scotch malt whiskies, white spirits, and ready-to-drink brands that will later be packaged at our sites in Leven and Shieldhall before they're sent around the world.
In Italy, we have a high-speed facility with 10 bottling lines producing 15 million cases a year and employing over 430 people. The facility—Santa Vittoria—has a fascinating history that dates back to the mid-1700s, when the first experiments for the production of sparkling wines in Italy took place in King Carlo Alberto of Savoia's hunting lodge, emulating French champagne.
In Mexico, our packaging operations include the iconic tequila brands Don Julio and Casamigos. We're also expanding and building new bottling, ageing warehouses and water treatment facilities in Atotonilco, Jalisco.
North America is home to several of our most-loved brands, including Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, Crown Royal Whiskies, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, and Aviation Gin. We have 12 supply sites across the United States, Canada and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Diageo North America’s supply function is one of the largest producers of beverage alcohol on the continent. We've made major investments in innovation and sustainability, helping to drive efficiency and best-in-class operations. To support the growth of our business portfolio we opened two new production sites: a new ready to drink (RTD) facility in Plainfield, Illinois which has capacity to produce over 25 million cases of malt-based beverages and spirits-based RTD cocktails; and opened our first carbon neutral distillery in Lebanon, Kentucky – one of the largest of its kind in North America, powered by 100% renewable electricity and using zero fossil fuels for production. We also recently announced plans for a carbon-neutral distillery in Ontario, Canada, to support the growth ambitions for our Crown Royal Canadian whisky brand.
