FAMILY WHISKY MAKERS
Since our founding of Wemyss Malts in 2005, it has been independently run by brother and sister duo William and Isabella, who are kin of the Scottish Wemyss family.
Enthused by his time spent with the expert wine blenders in Southern France, William Wemyss was inspired to create distinctive and bold Scottish whiskies. Isabella Wemyss, with her eye, and nose, for uncompromising quality, began to source exquisite single malts from Scotland and the very best oak casks from around the world.
Our wider family of whisky makers include blenders and veteran specialists of the whisky industry including the expertise of whisky writer Charlie Maclean, whose very invention of the whisky flavour wheel inspired the naming of our flavour-led creations.
THE ART OF BLENDING
The creative ingenuity of blending is what produces variety and complexity in life, whether that is whisky, wine, music, food, or culture. It is this creative ingenuity that inspires us to use our skills and techniques to craft distinctive Scotch malt whisky.
Our adventure starts with the sourcing of mature single malt whisky from the from the vast whisky warehouses of Scotland. The unique skills of our trusted blenders take these precious ingredients and craft them into new and flavourful creations.
We select single malts sourced from multiple regions and distilleries. This Provides our blenders with the wide variety that allows for for the crafting of complex flavours. To create our Scotch whiskies the blending team work to a secret recipe of base, support and signature Scotch single malts to craft each bottling.
A SPIRITED HERITAGE
We have a family history that inspires us every day to create contemporary spirits that celebrate our expertise and our adventurous endeavors in Scotland’s past.
