Background

Old St. Andrews Limited is the brand owner, producer and distributor of a range of premium quality and distinctive alcohol products with a history that can be traced back over 25 years. Today the company is a modern, efficient operation with worldwide distribution channels to the tax free, travel, retail and gift markets.

Based in the United Kingdom, we design our products in conjunction with the world’s leading whisky blenders in Scotland and gin distillers from our country’s heartland.

Old St Andrews’ Blenders have been in the whisky trade for 75 years and have also recently become distillers in their own right. This expertise, combining the knowledge of both the blending and distillation skills, and the wide arrange of malts available to our blenders, is encapsulated in Old St Andrews unique and cherished flavour.

Ten years on from the company’s launch, Old St Andrews made headway in the duty free market when it reacted with a number of successful niche blended whisky products specifically intended for sale within this market.Since this point Old St Andrew’s has continued to develop and the brand now carries two Scotch whisky brands in addition to its gift orientated ‘Par 3’ brand. These are ‘Clubhouse’, a five year old blend and ‘Whisky Barrel’, a 10 year old single malt.

In November 2005 Old St. Andrews purchased by John Donald who revised the product range and refreshed the logo to provide clearer brand focus. 2007 saw Old St Andrews make it’s first major stride outside of the whisky area and launch the award winning ‘Pink 47’ London dry gin. It was then featured in the Sunday Times, London, September 2008 and is a winner of no less than 18 awards.

April 2008: another exciting milestone for Old St Andrews was reached following the acquisition of the company by new owner, Bob Gorton. Bob intends to build on the brand platform and grow the business globally.
