Fwiw, we know distil will soon be starting up a new whiskey series. We also know that Distil own the rights to Mardi Gras brand. Mardi Gras could be used as a rum brand and if this were the case we could jettison Red Leg. All speculation.

I still hold here but have reduced on the last RNS. The key strategy was building a few strong brands and then to sell them to Diagio et al. Not sure the whiskey distillery fits that strategy. Further when Rolland Grain got involved there was always a danger he'd try and roll some of his ventures into DIS. I think that risk has increased, and while it might make sense (esp to him), it's not what I want as a holder, as I bought into the build and sell approach. Happy to be proven wrong and hence keep a holding (but reduced)

As it's a bit quiet atm, let me give the pot a stir. Let us assume for the moment that the doubters are correct and that Roland Grain is hoping to acquire Distil Plc in due course. There are several ways he could get control. For instance, he could become CEO when Don Goulding retires, or when he buys a greater stake and forces DG out. This still leaves DIS as a public company and as investors we could benefit from the renewed interest. In theory, he could buy up to a 51% controlling share in DIS, but this would be difficult without the support of other major holders. Personally, I don't think he would get the support for such a move as the larger holders also tend to be the solid backers who have loyally held for a long time. He could conspire, with loans from others, to buy DIS outright and then buy out the loans in due course. Also unlikely without support from the long term backers, in my opinion. As far as the rest of us are concerned, most moves along these lines should tend to increase the share price to our advantage and we are here to make a profit in the end, aren't we. An equivalent risk is that some giant will come out of the blue and gobble us up wholesale. This is certainly possible and the right buying price would trump all. It would ruin RG's game and should also make us all a profit, so why worry? However, just for further interest, here are a couple of imponderables to chew on. Did anyone notice that BERO (Part of the Rothschild empire) has come back into the light at last. It was undeclared for a few years and they held over 13% last time I looked and are old mates in right from the start. I don't think they would sell out. We don't know what RG's intentions are for ELLC (private) where he is a director, but it seems unlikely that such a basket case could acquire DIS, with or without RG's help. We also know that RG has a big, but not controlling, share in Manly (Australia). I don't think they will change our course of events, but they might help us with our exports. Finally, just to intrigue the doubters, whenever RG has acquired full control of any company in the past it has always been private, or subsequently been taken private. He has no previous record of a controlling interest in a public company. I believe that the more likely scenario is that this company will continue to grow and prosper and that every serious investor in it wants exactly the same thing. pete

I topped up a trading position at this level last week and am also hopeful of a move up from here. The underlying Bid has at least moved up off 2p to 2.015p for up to 375k shares. Under 120k available to buy which is encouraging, for the moment at least!

Some people are only here to try and cause doubt in the hope it keeps the price down while they buy more shares at this low price. They ask questions they don't actually want answers for, they just want to implant those ridiculous questions into investors heads. They ask questions that only the board of directors know the answer to, so that doubt is created. They put forward scenarios that are not happening and will never happen with this stock. Instead of thinking about the question, think about why the question is being asked.

Maybe Roland Grain could get the full value of the Distil brands for himself with his profile and financial acumen. Stuff the long term holders / mugs.

Why would Roland Grain want to takeover Distil? Maybe he sees value that others are blind to.

Daz is right IMHO. Ronald Grain is looking for a backdoor takeover. Every progressive dilution will see him get a larger percentage of the company. Small investors will be walked all over.

Scottish whisky requires a minimum of three years to mature. The first release from Ardgowan expected 2028. However, if you had read the general meeting release you would have noticed that Distil will produce non aged spirits there as of 2023, and Max McFarlane will blend Distil their own whisky series from a collection of distillers in Scotland - the first of which will be with us this year.

I thought whiskey took at least 10 years to produce? So much for building brands and selling them on to the big players, all the stakeholders are going to be waiting a very long time for a payout. A great opportunity missed with Redleg, the only brand worth anything pushed back for this backdoor takeover Glad I sold my shares

Have to agree with Haggis. The purpose of equity markets is to raise capital. IMO, this is an excellent opportunity for growth and we now have Max to blend our whisky for a 2021 release. Wonder what we should call it? Can you call a scottish whisky Mardi Gras?

Maybe not from DIS, but nothing is stopping investors buying at this low price.

You don't seem to understand how the stock market works. Small cap companies are listed so that they can raise cash from investors. If they wanted to borrow from the bank there is no point being listed.Don's plan has always been to keep the company debt free. Investors like debt free companies that can stand on their own two feet. The deal is a great one even at the price and dilution, because it's not dilution for nothing, we get a world class distillery in our pocket, to produce our products and create new one's quickly. This deal is a whole different ball game for DIS.

If the company had been more patient and had concentrated on selling the products it already has it would have raised money from the market at perhaps 4p a share. But no, it's all too easy to give into Mr Grain and feed the 'high net worth' individuals.

It seems to me that the company is unable/ unwilling to sell itself to the banks very well when interest rates are at an historic low. Plus we have plenty of inflation on the horizon to eat away at the debt.

Why would he borrow at stupid commercial interest rates when he can easily get the money from big investors and keep the company debt free?

Haggismchaggis, if Don really believes that RedLeg is worth £30 million why wouldn't he try to convince a bank to lend him money instead of diluting shares at a mere 2p?

RedLeg, £30m-£50m. Don laughed at £10m for it years ago, and it's a way bigger brand now.

Good article in the FT about old distilleries coming back online due to high demand and premiums. Distil could have their first whisky ready for Christmas. I also imagine that with this change in their strategy (i.e. part owning a distillery) they might be thinking to jettison Red Leg. How much would it raise?

Expecting good things in the near, medium and long terms. For those of you who are unawares we have some interesting people on board. Roland Grain holds 20%, Baron √Čric de Rothschild holds 13%. Over at Ardgowan, which Distil could own between 10 to 15%, we have Willie Phillips as Chairman, in a past life he was Managing Director of The Macallan, probably the best whiskey in the world. The whiskey maker is one Max McFarlane, his signature can be found on the 30 year old Highland Park. The stars have truly aligned.
