Compass box whiskies

Compass Box

Compass Box is a small producer, bottler and marketer of a range of blended Scotch whiskies. The company is headquartered in London, England. Compass Box Whisky was founded in 2000 by American entrepreneur John Glaser, a former marketing director at Johnnie Walker. Their main product line, called the Signature Range, consists of whiskies named 'The Spice Tree', 'The Peat Monster', 'Oak Cross', 'Asyla' and 'Hedonism'. Outside the Signature Range, they produce a range of Blended Scotch whiskies called 'Great King Street', within which there are two products: 'Artist's Blend' (a light, fruity, spicy blend) and 'Glasgow Blend' (a fuller-bodied blend with notes of sherry and smoke made in the style historically favoured by Glaswegians). They have also released blends with a limited release, such as 'Hedonism Maximus', 'Flaming Heart', 'Optimism', 'Morpheus' and the Canto Cask series. Apart from whiskies, they also produce 'Orangerie', made from whisky infused with orange zest and spices. The blend 'The Spice Tree' is a different version from the original 2005 release of the whisky under the same name. The 'Eleuthera' blend has been discontinued. Compass Box does not distil any of the whiskies used in its blends. The company's whisky makers select distillates from a number of existing Scotch whisky distilleries, specifically malts from Ardmore, Caol Ila, Clynelish, Dailuaine, Glen Elgin, Laphroaig and Teaninich and grain whiskies from Cameronbridge and Cambus. The selected whiskies are then blended together and the resulting blend is matured further. (From Wikipedia)
