The Whisky Cellar
The Whisky Cellar was founded in 2017 as an independent Scottish bottler by whisky expert Keith Bonnington
Bonnington, who lives in the heart of Edinburgh, can look back on a career in whisky spanning almost two decades. For over 10 years he was responsible at Edrington for brands such as the Macallan and Highland Park.

With the aid of a comprehensive network of sources and suppliers and an expert panel of testers, including master whisky maker Max Macfarlane, the Whisky Cellar selects exclusive and exquisite single casks of Scottish whisky from its main brands and places them on the market: The Whisky Cellar Private Cellars Selection, Whisky Illuminati and the Easy Sipper. With everything from single malt, single grain, blended malt and whiskys of the world represented in the range, no whisky - or, for that matter, whiskey - is ruled out. If he likes it enough and the story is an interesting one, the whisky is bottled - but only when Keith thinks the time is right to do so.
When it comes to maturing and finishing, bourbon, sherry and madeira casks are used which give the whiskies that extra touch of something special. All the whiskies are placed on the market at cask strength and, as exclusive individual bottlings, as extremely limited editions.
For Keith Bonnington, whisky is "always a loyal companion in times of reflection, concentration, grief and celebration. It is always treated with due respect and has vouchsafed him so many unforgettable moments over time." In 2013 he was appointed an honorary member of the "Keepers of the Quaich". Keith hopes that his whiskies will bring you as much joy as creating this selection did for him.

Distillerie Tessendier & Fils
Grape growers, producers of Cognac and innovative spirits
“Time is of the essence for creating high-quality spirits” (Jérôme Tessendier)
The Tessendier & Fils Distillery, established in 1880, is a family-run business based in Cognac and Jarnac, on the banks of the Charente, which produces a diverse portfolio of high-quality Cognacs (see Cognac Park) with a modern twist. The heirs, Jérôme and Lilian Tessendier, have succeeded in modernising the family business in the face of the international dimension of the market: first by creating their own brand of Cognac, then by drawing on their ancestral savoir-faire to refine other types of spirits. This knowledge was forged over time, improved from generation to generation and is now shared by the Tessendier Distillery through three Cognac series (Park, Campagnère, Grand Breuil), each with its own unique character, its own history.
