Bottled at 46% Not Chill-Filtered, Light 5 Micron Filtration, Natural Colour, Lead Whiskymakers: Rosey Mitchell and Jill Boyd- The Circle is based around a parcel of fruity and creamy single malt from the Tamdhu Distillery in Speyside. This is supported by malt whisky from the Clynelish Distillery. A touch of peated malt whisky from an Orkney distillery and a small proportion of a French oak-finished blended malt whisky complete the recipe. We think we've achieved exactly what Rosey envisaged. The whisky is bright and warm with a creamy softness. It practically radiates sunlight! Other text Sunshine in a glass- Rosey Mitchell is the 2018 winner of The Circle, our programme designed to inspire bartenders around the world. Rosey's prize To create a blend with Compass Box founder John Glaser and whiskymaker Jill Boyd. Rosey wanted to make an approachable whisky to be shared with friends, something for the daytime, a whisky with brightness. She called it sunshine in a glass.
Producer Back in 2000, John Glaser believed there were too many companies making and selling Scotch whisky the same way. An American, transplanted to the UK and working for a large distiller, he wanted to do things differently to bring the joys of Scotch whisky to more people. So, he set up a different kind of Scotch whisky company, based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and an unrelenting desire to create quality. He originally launched the business from his kitchen, but today, over a decade later, Compass Box has an office and Blending Room in London, its own stocks of maturing whiskies in Scotland, and just over a dozen employees. In an industry that has steadfastly remained committed to the way we've always done things, at Compass Box we focus relentlessly on creativity, process innovations, and exploring the many ways we all can enjoy the pleasures of Scotch whisky. With more spectrum of flavour and style than any other spirit, we believe Scotch whisky is one of the world's great drinks. We are here to help ensure it stays that way for generations to come.
