Compass Box Whisky Co. produces a line of artisan, hand-crafted Scotch whiskies created by John Glaser, former global brand director for Johnnie Walker. Taking an innovative, négociant approach to barrel selection and oak ageing, Compass Box uses only natural processes (never chill filtering or using artificial coloring). Glaser selects only the finest, aged whiskies from Scottish distilleries to be blended into a range of styles that traverse the soft, sweet aperitif to the rich, complex and smoky. Compass Box, and its newest line of blended Scotch whisky, Great King Street, have won over 70 international awards, including four time “Innovator of the Year” from Whisky Magazine and three time “Blend of the Year” from Whisky Advocate.
