Scotch whisky company Angus Dundee is run by the children of founder Terry Hillman – Aaron, 52, and Tania, 55 later this month. The London-based operation bought the mothballed Tomintoul distillery on Speyside in 2000 and then Glencadam malt distillery in Brechin, Angus three years later. Its profits slipped in 2015-16 to £15.7m on £53.3m sales. With £115.6m net assets and very low borrowings it is easily worth £170m. The business also paid a dividend of £10m last year.
