Compass Box

Independent blending house, Compass Box, is probably the most creative of all whisky companies. Founded in 2000 by John Glaser, who remains its Whiskymaker and guiding genius, it consistently releases whiskies of character, interest and above all style.

The last comes not only from the flavours of the individual products, but from their outstanding presentation. For over ten years the company’s labels have been designed by Stranger & Stranger, which has been described as “the world’s leading packaging design and branding company”, whose motto is: “Don’t Fit In, Stand Out”.

John Glaser has been working closely with Stranger’s Founder and CEO, Kevin Shaw, for ten years and together they have come up with some wonderful brand names and the most ingenious and artistic labels ever seen by the Scotch whisky industry.
