modern distillery to be established in West Africa. It was established
by the pre-independence Industrial Development Corporation (IDC)
in 1958 as the State Distilleries Corporation for the manufacture of
alcoholic beverages. By NLCD 207, it however became a division of the
then Ghana Industrial Holding Corporation (GIHOC) in 1968.
In 1980, the distillery together with 15 other divisions of GIHOC was re-registered and incorporated as a Limited Liability Company and wholly owned subsidiary of GIHOC, under Ghana’s Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179).Â Following the closure of GIHOC, and subsequently the repeal of the statute incorporatingÂ it in 1993, GIHOC Distilleries became and has since remained a limited liability company, wholly owned by the Government of Ghana.
GDCL has since then performed creditably and
established itself as a commercially sustainable enterprise in the
alcoholic beverage industry in Ghana. It has over the years perfected
the art of distillation, refinery, blending and manufacture of various
types of alcoholic beverages for the local market and beyond and is now
recognised as a market leader.
