A little over ten years ago ————- started a scheme to help finance growth of his fledgling whisky company ————-. It is possible in those early days that ————- intentions were good but it wasn’t long before ————-, given a big endorsement by Whisky Bible author Jim Murray, was in financial trouble and ————- was selling empty barrels and stealing from other barrels to bottle and sell.
Fast forward a little and those investors left with the remnant of the failure were stuck between a rock and a hard place due to ————- refusal to fulfil ————- contracts in place with investors.
Enter Peter Bignell of Belgrove Rye Whisky fame and his hastily formed consortium. Peter, a gentleman if ever there was one, felt the pain of the ————- investors and put together a rescue deal to purchase the barrels and set out to blend and bottle the whisky that almost never saw the light of day.
