Established in 2008 The Alistair Walker Company is based in Grangemouth in Central Scotland. Alistair has almost 20 years experience in the whisky industry and is not affiliated to any one distillery. Alistair’s career in the whisky industry began in January 1997, at Burn Stewart Distillers in a sales and marketing role for over six years. At that time Burn Stewart was the custodian of two single malt distilleries – Deanston and Tobermory. In October 2004, he joined The BenRiach Distillery Company, and remained with them for over twelve years, until the business was eventually sold. This was a new-start business, that had been set up in 2004 following the acquisition, by three entrepreneurs, of the BenRiach Distillery from Pernod Ricard. In addition to BenRiach, Alistair also had the good fortune to work with the GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh Distilleries, with BenRiach having acquired GlenDronach in 2008, and then Glenglassaugh in 2013. In 2018, Alistair found himself on hiatus, and contemplating what to do next. The whiskies the are bottled under the brand name ‘Infrequent Flyers’. That name refers to the nature of many of the casks that are bottled – often whiskies from lesser-known distilleries that are of excellent quality, but have never been widely or consistently available. As such, many of the bottlings are of whiskies that you just don’t see so often – hence the name ‘Infrequent Flyers’.
The Aultmore Distillery is owned and run by John Dewar and Sons Ltd or better known as Bacardi. The distillery has changed hands a few times during its long history when it was founded in 1896. Aultmore in Gaelic means ‘Big Burn’ and the water for the spirit is taken from the Burn of Auchindorran which helps it produce around 2,100,000 litres of spirit annually. The Aultmore spirit has for a long time been a contributor to Dewars blends and is best known for its 12 year old single malt which has a very distinctive taste.
This single cask single malt whisky was distilled at the Aultmore Distillery before being placed in a refill ex-Bourbon barrel and left to mature for 10 years. It was bottled at 58.5% abv and marks bottling number 28 of the Infrequent Flyers series. Only 240 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
