Here's what our client's have to say about us...
When we were purchasing the distillery, we also required to purchase some rather specialist insurances. Initially, we were stuck in a room with seven experts from a multi national insurance broking firm who told us we would never be able to purchase the cover we needed.
Read MoreOur lawyer suggested we meet Bob Hannah at The Business Insurance Bureau – it is fitting, I think, that it was a similarly rare, quality independent firm, The Business Insurance Bureau, that managed to unlock the door to the insurance we needed - and we’ve never looked back. Since 2004 The Benriach Distillery Company has won various enterprise and trade awards and the quality of our product is internationally recognised.
The market and the ballroom were always complex from an insurance viewpoint but when we started running rock concerts, our insurers really got the willies. They put our premiums up to unimaginable levels and there seemed to be nothing anyone could do about it.
Read MoreWe were about to give up concerts altogether when, through another business contact, we were introduced to Bob Hannah. He commissioned an independent structural/fire survey which showed the ballroom to be a much better risk than had previously been believed. As a result we ended up with our insurance position renegotiated to an acceptable level. There is no doubt this little touch of ingenuity has turned out to be a major contribution to what is now Scotland’s most vibrant concert venue.
At Burger King we live with very exacting standards. We have to be competitive on price, have quality products, fast friendly service and provide it in a fast friendly environment. We have to satisfy the demands and needs of an increasingly sophisticated public
Read Morewho come into our restaurants in great numbers every year. We need our insurance backup to follow the same exacting standards and for some years, The Bureau has provided that service for us. Obviously, the personal service and relationship between us is part of that, but their willingness to deal with claims without hassle and fuss is probably their greatest strength.”
With over 30 years experience in providing insurances for the food drink and entertainment sector, Robert Hannah has seen some real catastrophes up close.

‘Coia’s Café has become a landmark in Duke St since 1928, almost 80 years and our values have stood the test of time. I came to The Business Insurance Bureau in 2005, just before we completely renovated and extended the café. I came to The Business Insurance Bureau for
Read Morea number of reasons – premiums obviously, but more importantly, they repeatedly surveyed the kitchen and the building throughout the renovations to make sure we complied with both our policy conditions and that our sums insured were adequate as the renovation went on. With their backup, I feel confident Coia’s Café will still be a landmark in another 80 years time.
The Whisky Shop is the largest whisky only specialist in the UK. We have 15 outlets across the country and our Online Shop is available at www.whiskyshop.com. When we were developing our Business, the subject of Insurance for stock such as whisky was something requiring

The Koh I Noor is the most famous diamond in the world – it came from India and sits in the crown of the British Monarch – literally, the Jewel in The Crown. We like to think of the restaurant in the same way – over the years we’ve become part of the establishment in Glasgow, inventing the
Read MoreBuffet concept of casual dining - but our reputation goes much further. Many celebrities, like Billy Connelly eat with us when they are in Glasgow. We’ve insured with The Business Insurance Bureau for at least ten years. On Guy Fawkes Night, 1995, there was a huge storm. At 1.00am, it blew the chimney head off the building next door – it crashed through the roof, the restaurant and landed in the basement below. It was a scene of total devastation. That we’re still a successful business is in no small measure due to the insurance arrangements made by the Business Insurance Bureau, then and now. Every year, they survey our kitchen and help us make sure that everything is as it should be – we justifiably feel secure in their hands.
