The Alistair Walker Whisky Company, founded by Alistair Walker, son of whisky legend Billy Walker, is a rising star in the world of Scotch whisky. Established in 2018 and based in Grangemouth, Central Scotland, the company has quickly gained recognition for its dedication to independent bottling.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the Scotch whisky industry, Alistair Walker embarked on his journey as an independent bottler. The company's mission is to source exceptional whiskies from various distilleries throughout Scotland and beyond. These whiskies are then bottled as single casks, retaining their natural essence – un-chill filtered, at natural color, and often at cask strength.

Under the brand name 'Infrequent Flyers,' the company bottles whiskies that often hail from lesser-known distilleries, offering a glimpse into exceptional yet infrequently seen expressions. This emphasis on rare and lesser-known whiskies has earned the brand its distinctive name.

Alistair Walker's journey in the whisky industry has been influenced by his family's legacy. His experience includes working at Burn Stewart, which owned distilleries like Deanston and Tobermory, followed by joining The BenRiach Distillery Co., where he witnessed the malt whisky category's growth.

After a successful career in the industry, Alistair Walker decided to chart his course. He founded his own independent bottling company, aiming to bring unique and exceptional Scotch whiskies to enthusiasts worldwide. The company focuses on quality rather than quantity, with a release program driven by the maturation of casks rather than sales targets. The future of the Alistair Walker Whisky Company promises continued growth and innovation in the world of Scotch whisky.
