Don Sutcliffe, Managing Director of Craft Distillers and Willie Philips, former Managing Director of Macallan, have said they have always wanted to work together on a project together. A meeting of minds and passion for a product in which they have both spent their lives specialising in and a product that has been the base of their long standing friendship. Primarily they are Whisky lovers and that is what makes this project so special.
Don and Willie blend aged whiskies from selected barrels from different distilleries, which have been picked according to their individualistic nature, purity of flavour and unique characteristics. What makes them unique is that rather than sticking to prearranged styles and seeking consistency year to year, The Exceptional Whisky Company will offer unique whiskies upon each release, all of which will be determined by their own qualitative and stylistic distinction.
