Compass Box Whisky

Started in 2000, John Glaser believed there were too many companies making and selling Scotch whisky the same way. An American, transplanted to the UK and working for a large distiller, he wanted to do things differently to bring the joys of Scotch whisky to more people.

So, he set up a different kind of Scotch whisky company, based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and a desire to create quality. He originally launched the business from his kitchen, but today, nearly 20 years later, Compass Box has firmly established itself as a boutique blender and producer of Scotch whiskies with substance.
