Dràm Mòr Group opened its doors since 2013 as a spirits export agency and fully established itself as a family-owned independent bottler in 2019. The company headquarter is in the town of Dumbarton.
The Beginnings of Dram Mor Group
The owners of Dram Mor Group are husband and wife team, Kenny and Viktorija Macdonald. Passionate about whiskies, they have worked in the whisky industry for many years. Initially, the company operates as an export agent for various Scottish distilleries. In 2018, the dynamic duo started investing in whisky casks, purely for themselves. However, as they began to amass more than just a few whisky casks, Kenny thought it was time to take a step further as an independent bottler! In 2019, Dram Mor started bottling their first series of whisky casks with the advice of Jim McEwan, the whisky legend.
Alas, Covid-19 struck the world in early 2020, pushing back the timeline that Kenny and Viktorija had first set out. Nonetheless, Viktorija worked hard in securing most of her distributors in Europe and also reached out to Spirits Castle in Singapore!
Dràm Mòr prides itself as a single cask whisky bottler, choosing quality casks to showcase the best of every Scottish whisky. Every bottling goes through the strict criteria that co-founder, Kenny MacDonald set down. Each whisky cask is unique, and only the best whisky that passed the criteria get bottled.
More Than Just an Independent Bottler
If you think that Dram Mor is just yet another independent bottler, then you have misunderstood them. Besides bottling single cask whiskies under their brand, Dram Mor Group is also a whisky cask broker, working exclusively with Scotch whiskies. Spirits Castle, of course, becomes their exclusive agent in Singapore and South East Asia for whisky cask brokerage too!
Dram Mor Group offers not only the chance for our clients to own whisky casks but also services such as re-racking (transferring whisky from one cask to another). Re-racking assures cask owners of good outcomes for their whisky. They are also highly connected around the world, making it easy for cask owners to sell their casks. To make things even sweeter, Jim McEwan gives advice to Kenny and Viktorija on the side! So any cask owners who have casks with us will know that they have many experts to discuss details with.
