Billy&Co is proudly named after our founder’s late father, William James Taylor. Billy was quite a character. As well as building our distillery, he knew what was truly important in a great dram. Smooth, rich and balanced enough to be appreciated by all.
He inspired us to create this very special Single Malt Scotch Whisky. One that can be loved and shared by everyone. Here’s to you Billy.
Like Billy, we believe good whisky should bring people together. That’s why we want you to join us. As an exclusive Billy&Co Founders Club member you’ll share in the tasting, testing and development of the whisky.
With our innovation and your insights we can make history together. And craft a Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that delivers big on mouth feel, richness and complexity.
Crafting innovative spirits for everyone who likes a tipple sits at the heart of everything we do at Crafty Distillery.
As we set out on our Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky adventure, we have one simple mission in mind. To create an innovative spirit that’s packed with character.
Before maturation, the unique tastes and aromas found in whisky come from barley, yeast and water. This new make spirit is a whisky’s DNA. And we want to understand the science behind it. Like looking at the different varieties of barley and the flavours in the yeasts (to see how they’re affected by the process).
We’re confident this scientific, inclusive approach will deliver on the traditions of what Single Malt Scotch Whisky should be. And then take it to another level when it comes to local characteristics, quality and taste.
Each member will receive 17 aged new make spirit samples in the post. Samples will be 5cl, with the first box of four samples going out in spring 2021.
As a member you get to feedback on each sample and share in the whisky’s development. This will give us a rare level of insight. And help us to create a very rare Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. One that Billy would be proud to share.
