Douglas Laing & Co. was founded in 1948 and since then based in Glasgow. Fred Douglas Laing started as a whiskey broker and especially whiskey blender. In 1998 came his sons, Fred and Stewart to the conclusion that a large part of the stocks of whiskey which they left to mature on the barrel was too good for blending. From that time she began to specialize as an independent bottler of the best whiskeys. They began the Old Malt Cask line, where older single cask whiskey at 50% (also called Golden Strength) strength get bottled. Over the years there have been quite a few gems marketed by the very striking brothers. Besides Old Malt Cask there are now even introduced a number of other product lines, including Old & Rare, formerly known as The Platinum Collection. Very old and very special casks bottled in particularly beautiful bottles. Naturally without filtration, dilution and staining There is also the Provenance range. Bottled at 46%, these whiskeys at least one but not more than three vessels. Oftwel small batch single malts. Non-chillfiltered and not colored. Course. All great whiskeys from young to very old, and very expensive and exclusive to affordable. But always with a lot of flavor in the glass. And tastefully decorated. Also consider the Premier Barrel collection. Lovely young whiskey, bottled in beautiful stone jugs.
