Mark and I have over 40 years experience in the Scotch Whisky industry between us and, after many years of working for other people, we decided the time was right to start our own independent bottling company. This was in December 2019. A few months later we were seriously questioning the timing of our new venture! However, despite the challenging circumstances (to global pandemic, add a new baby and impending Brexit), we are absolutely delighted with how things are going so far.
After an incredibly successful Crowdfunder campaign in April 2020, we bottled our first cask (for Crowdfunders only) a few months later, followed by our first general release of 5 casks in September 2020. We’ve bottled a total of 26 casks in our first year covering single malt, blended malt, single grain, blend, rums and Indian whisky (our first non-scotch whisky) and hope to expand on our offering over time. Basically, as long as it tastes good and has spent time in a cask, then we’ll happily bottle it.
