Meet our Makers - Darach

Our new Online Whisky Gift shop has a whole range of products, from bottles, to chocolates, staves to gift sets - we've got it all!🥃 We wanted to share some of the stories and people behind these great products, so welcome to our 'Meet the Makers' series!😊

This month we're focussing on our beautiful staves from Darach - a small family run company, based in Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. “Darach is the Gaelic word for ‘oak’. Every single Darach product is hand made in Inverness from vintage oak whisky barrels, sourced from Highland and Speyside distilleries. Each unique piece is a blend of tradition, durability, beauty and fine design.”🥃😍

Check out our latest 'Meet the Makers' blog to find out more about the company and their beautiful products - https://shop.scotchwhiskyexperience.co.uk/blogs/meet-our-makers/meet-our-makers-darach
