Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
