The news marks the first stage of The Last Drop Distillers, using their extensive library of maturing Scotch whisky casks, to not only ‘curate’ but to also ‘create’ whisky.

This is not the first time that Colin Scott and the families who founded The Last Drop have worked together. This longstanding friendship and rapport began in the 1990s when The Last Drop founders James Espey and Tom Jago, worked with Colin at Chivas Brothers.

Commenting on the news, Colin Scott, said: ‘’The Last Drop is a family business, founded by two men I have the pleasure of knowing as friends and colleagues for many years. I have spent the majority of my career working and learning from family-owned brands and long may that continue. The Last Drop is very much a luxury brand in a very niche market. They have global reach, but have maintained their integrity and vision since they began, which is hugely important to me. This is a new chapter that I am very much looking forward to carrying on the story that began with Tom and James some decades ago.”

The Last Drop Distillers Inaugural Signature Blend, created by Colin Scott, will be released in 2021.
