Glenmorangie

Famous Scottish Distillery goes electric with Grosvenor.

Situated near Tain, north of Inverness, The Glenmorangie Company is famous for its whiskey, and is an important part of Moët Hennessy-Louis Vuitton (LVMH). 

LVMH strives to ensure the long-term development of each of its Houses in keeping with their identity, their heritage and their expertise. They boast a truly unique corporate ecosystem that respects tradition whilst focusing on the future.

A key part of this culture is sustainability. So, when it came to renewing its fleet of cars and light commercial vehicles travelling around the Scottish Highlands, Glenmorangie spoke to Grosvenor’s 0Zone team. As a specialist in-house team of low emission consultants, they help Grosvenor Group customers seek ultra-low and zero emission vehicle solutions, and looked at suitable electric vehicles to replace Glenmorangie’s traditional petrol and diesel fleet.

“When we first sat down with the Glenmorangie team, we started by looking at how the vehicles were used,” explained Mark Gallagher, green fleet specialist at Grosvenor Leasing. 

“It’s vital to get the right fit of ultra-low emission or electric vehicle, and it’s important to understand what mileages are being covered, where the cars and vans are being driven and what they are being used for.

“Being in the Scottish Highlands, travel can become more challenging in the winter months and we looked at 4x4 off-road options for some vehicles. We also mapped out the availability of charging points in the key locations where their drivers travelled, and the number of servicing garages for ULEVs and EVs, before making our final recommendations.”

Thanks to Grosvenor’s advice and support, Glenmorangie opted to replace their vehicles with plug-in hybrid models of the 4-wheel driver Mitsubishi Outlander, alongside fully electric Nissan Leafs.

The 0Zone team also looked at Glenmorangie’s pool fleet, managed by a central administration office, with a view to converting all company and pool vehicles to plug-in models across the board.

Danielle Beale-Kemp, Glenmorangie’s strategic purchasing director, said, “It was important to us to partner with a contract hire and fleet management specialist with the same values as ours, and we were immediately impressed with Grosvenor’s dedication to reducing emissions and supporting the green agenda.

“They gave us truly impartial advice and offered real in-depth knowledge around ultra-low emission and electric vehicles and have been a real help in moving us smoothly towards alternative fuels as part of our own goals to be green and sustainable throughout our business.”
