Barry Gibb, Director of Gibbs Inverurie commented; “We’ve been working with Pernod Ricard for the last 15 years and they know and trust we will deliver on a large scale.  This is not just a boost to our business, but the trip creates an economic boost all round for companies throughout the north-east of Scotland.

Gibbs was established 36 years ago and currently employs 10 staff.  The outfitters will have to employ a further 3 or 4 staff over the summer to cope with the demand.  Barry Gibb commented further; “This isn’t a one-off for us.  We have a further 5 groups booked between now and September from Pernod Ricard.  It includes Italians, Turkish and Americans and they are putting on a wealth of hospitality to ensure that their guests enjoy their time here, which includes the chance to wear our Highland outfits.”
