The Brands

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS)

-----------------------------------------------

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS), founded in Edinburgh in 1983, is a membership organisation which bottles and sells some of the worlds most sought after single cask, single malt Whisky. As an Indepedent Bottler; it purchases individual casks from more than 125 malt whisky distilleries in Scotland and throughout the world, bottles them and retails them directly to their customers.


Samaroli

------------------------------------------------

The name Samaroli has become synonymous to whisky enthusiasts with rarity, legend and immense beauty. The Independent Bottling company- originally founded by Silvano Samaroli- was one of the first dedicated bottlers to actively promote cask strength whisky, and is still one of the only ones to tout the beneficial effects of bottle afeing with the much-loved line on the rear labels; 'Further matues in its bottle'.

Throughout the 1980s, Samaroli released dosens of bottlins which are now consiered 'LEGENDS' and are highly sought at auction. The artistry of the labels has also proved influentual oer the years with numerous bottlers taking inspiration from Samaroli's artistic style.


Bunnahabhain

----------------------------------------------

The Bunnahabhain Distillery was founded in 1881 near Port Askaig on Islay. The village of Bunnahabhain was founded to house its workers. Bunnahabhain's history is fascinating and as they say on their website: 'we have many tales to tell'.

The Bunnahabhain is one of the milder single malt Islay whiskies available and its taste varies greatly from other spirits to be found on the island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.
