Filled early on our journey, these casks will occupy a prominent position in our warehouse as a tribute to the support of our Founders.

Please note: these are guidelines only. Delays are possible on both the completion of the construction and the commissioning of the distillery. Delays are also possible if we believe the whisky is not yet at its peak and therefore not ready. Please do not purchase a Founder Membership if a potential delay would prove to be unacceptable for you
All bottles will be produced without chill filtering and will be naturally coloured.
Details of high tier status will be confirmed in writing prior to our first ballot. This will not be a guarantee that you will receive a bottle of any of particular release.
