In 2016 Iain Croucher began North Star Spirits in Glasgow after working for the independent bottler AD Rattray. North Start has since bottled a wide variety of both Single Malt and Blended Scotch Whisky including some American whiskies too. The brand is named after the star ‘Polaris’ – the current Northern pole star. The theme of astronomy continues with various releases being named after other stars in the universe including ‘Vega’ and ‘Sirius’. The bottler was awarded ‘Independent Bottler of the Year’ at the Scottish Whisky Awards in 2020.
The Inchgower Distillery was built in 1871 by Alexander Wilson & Company to replace the Tochineal distillery but liquidated in 1903. In 1938 the ownership was transferred to Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd and to this day the Bell’s logo is used in the advertising of Inchgower. Producing around 2,000,000 litres of spirit annually the distillery is now owned and operated by Diageo and is used as major component in Bell’s blended whisky.
This single cask single malt whisky was distilled at the Inchgower distillery before being placed in a refill Bourbon Hogshead and left to mature for 11 years. In June 2019 it was bottled at 52.5% abv as part of the North Start Cask Series Number 9. Only 321 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
