Amber Glen- Traditional Smooth & Mellow Whisky Distilled, Matured & Bottled In Scotland

07/12/2018

Amber Glen embodies the flavours and aromas of a time gone by in a celebration of perfection for you to enjoy

Founded by Samuel Minionis CEO in 2013, The Amber Glen Scotch Whisky brand came into being when Sam, a property investment consultant at that time, was commissioned by a client to advise on acquiring a bonded Scotch whisky maturation warehouse. As Sam researched the project he discovered the incredible diversity and complexity of the many varieties, regions and ageing processes that make up Scotch Whisky and why a maturation warehouse also known as a dunnage warehouse is a very rare commodity indeed and a unique investment opportunity.

But alas the warehouse was acquired by a Scotch Whisky factor. However in understanding the uniqueness and the process that makes up this wondrous elixir of life known as uisge beatha (uishkay vhar) and as by serendipitous circumstances “chance favours the prepared mind” Sam spotted a gap in the export market and was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to create and establish a new and independent brand of Scotch Whisky, one that could find its own niche and appeal to a new wave of consumers in emerging markets around the world, as well as to new and younger age groups of consumers in the traditional export markets.

Along with his Chairman, Clan Chief Donald MacLaren, The MacLaren Of MacLaren and fellow Directors Nathan Lowry & Bhai Raja Thapa, Sam set about creating the legend and mythology of Amber Glen, a place that exists only in the mists of time, but that is embodied by the pure taste of outstanding provenance Scotch Whisky.
