The brandCompass Box est une petite société indépendante spécialisée dans l'assemblage de whiskies achetés auprès de grandes maisons. Compass Box en a fait sa spécialité, pour devenir maître dans le genre: blended malt, blended grain et blended whisky, chacune de ces catégories est représentée dans leur portefeuille. Oak Cross en est l’illustration puisque John Glaser, le maître distillateur de Compass Box, souhaite associer le meilleur du vieillissement en fûts de chêne américain et français. Oak Cross représente donc l’harmonie des arômes de vanille du chêne américain et les épices du chêne français.
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’.
