The future is shaped by what we do today.
Today reveals what we did in the past.
Over 125 years in the making
Our story begins
First generation, establishing principles
Second generation, a pioneer
A true pioneer, Mr George was instrumental to the success of Scotch whisky, particularly single malts. He started working in the business in 1933 and in 1968 created the iconic Connoisseurs Choice range featuring single malts at a time when most were used for blending.
Mr George travelled widely, keen to showcase single malts from distilleries all over Scotland, matured in his own casks.
A Legendary Year
A selection of these casks were left to quietly slumber in our warehouses, eventually going on to make history as the oldest single malt Scotch whiskies in the world.

Connoisseurs Choice Launches
This range set the trend for single malts around the world.
