It’s not uncommon for whisky and car enthusiasts to overlap (though, for obvious reasons, keep the two hobbies distinctly separate), and that’s how Coachbuilt Whisky was created – by spirits expert George Koutsakis and Formula One racing driver Jenson Button! The two founders met serendipitously, and bonded over Button’s love of coachbuilding, and the similarities between that and the art of whisky blending. And so, Coachbuilt was born.
It was also created with the aim to put the spotlight back on blended Scotch, and all of its merits. The blend itself is made with spirits from each of Scotland’s five whisky-producing regions: Speyside, Campbeltown, the Highlands, the Lowlands, and the Islands. Each component is then married together in ex-sherry casks, so there’s lots of chocolate and spice to be found here.
Chocolate spread on toast, tangy pineapple, oily nuts, and a wisp of smoke.
Fiery stem ginger, toasty mocha, orange marmalade, again underpinned by fragrant smoke.
Butterscotch, berry coulis, and vanilla shortbread.
