Compass Box

Compass Box Whisky was founded in 2000 by American John Glaser, a former marketing director at Diageo with Johnnie Walker.  They produce a range of blended whiskies and grains as part of both the core range and limited releases.  The company's whisky makers select distillates from a number of existing Scotch whisky distilleries, with the selected whiskies then being blended together and the resulting blend matured further. 

Compass Box is a company that's always looking to push the boundaries of what blends are capable of, they have also courted controversy.  Firstly an initial release of a whisky called The Spice Tree was deemed to be illegal by the governing body  because of the use of additional flat staves in the maturation process In response, Compass Box altered the production process for subsequent releases of The Spice Tree.  Compass Box have also sought to release complete information about every component whisky used in its blends - a step which the SWA claimed was prohibited by both EU and UK laws. In response, Compass Box launched a 'Scotch Whisky Transparency' campaign to encourage greater transparency within the world of Scotch.  Always much sought after, they show no signs of slowing down, their latest release, Affinity, sees a blend created between whisky and Calvados.
