Crafty Distillery is committed to creating some very special Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, that respects the quality and process of our unique national drink and seeks to raises the bar in terms of taste & quality. To achieve this, we have launched our unique Billy&Co Founders Club, which was created to allow you to share in the development of our whisky. Our goal is to uncover a new level of smooth, rich and tasty Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.Join Our Founders Club
Billy&Co is proudly named after our founder’s late father, William (Billy) James Taylor. Talented, sociable and approachable, he built our distillery and through his own love of whisky inspired us to create some very special Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that will deliver what he knew was truly important in a great dram. Smooth, rich, complex and balanced to ensure it can be shared and appreciated by all.
Like Billy, we strongly believe that good Single Malt Scotch Whisky helps bring people together. So for us, it's crucial you can join us on that journey of discovery. Through our exclusive ‘Billy&Co Founders Club’ membership you will make history and share in the tasting, researching and development of some very special whisky. With your help we can define an exciting new Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Innovation and quality sit at the heart of everything we do at Crafty Distillery. As we set out on our Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky journey, our mission is resolute. With your help we will craft an exciting new Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that delivers big on mouth feel, richness and complexity. A dram proudly developed with the people for the people!!
Prior to maturation, the unique tastes and aromas found in Single Malt Scotch Whisky originate from the only three permitted ingredients; barley, yeast and water. Our goal is to better understand the science and performance of varieties of barley, explore unique yeasts, the flavours they produce and the effects of all the processes and their influences. We’re confident our more scientific and inclusive approach will craft Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that delivers on the traditions of what Scotch Whisky should be, and take it to another level of regionality, quality and taste.
Each member will receive 17x 5cl (85cl in total) aged new make spirit samples in the post, with the first box of 4x 5cl samples planned for Spring 2021. As a member you get to feedback on each sample and help share in the development. This unique approach will give a rare level of insight, which in time, will deliver a Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky that Billy would be proud to share with you all.
