In 2005, after years in the drinks retailing business, David and Leonie launched their very own Single Malt Whisky and range of single cask single malt whiskies. They began to receive exceptional reviews of their products in the media and the reputation quickly began to grow.
In 2012, David was approached by Diageo who asked him if he would be interested in developing and managing their Distillery Visitor Centres at Caol Ila and Lagavulin distilleries on Islay. As Caol Ila was his favourite whisky, he jumped at the opportunity!
Leonie also moved to Islay to join him in 2013. Working for such iconic distilleries gave them both the opportunity to work at large scale drinks industry events and festivals overseas and they travelled extensively, spreading the Islay whisky word around Europe and further afield. This experience in distillation, production and marketing fantastic world-class products inspired them to bring whisky-related events to the masses.
The events are fun, informative and above all authentic. They are suitable for all whether new to the worlds of gin and whisky, or seasoned enthusiast. Distilled Events are also available for private bookings and corporate events so if you're looking for gift ideas or something a bit different for the office, get in touch!
