It's like walking into a lonely bar to find three gorgeous women … and you don’t have to choose. 
 
Compass Box isn’t a distillery … it isn’t a distributor … Compass Box is a story. It’s a great story that began in the year 2000 when John Glaser—a marketing director for Johnnie Walker decided to break out on his own. Think about it for a moment. John is an American working for one of the most iconic brand names in the word of Scotch Whisky and thinks he can do it better on his own. 

“The Lost Blend” is named in tribute to the long-gone “Eleuthera” with a tip of the hat to a wonderful short story by O’Henry of the same name. John Glaser’s “The Lost Blend” is a sublime combination of Highland sisters Clynelish and Allt-á-Bhainne with the wind-swept Islay goddess Caol Ila, aged and married together like only Compass Box can. It’s like walking into a lonely bar to find three gorgeous women waiting for you … and you don’t have to choose.

Interestingly, O’Henry’s short story “The Lost Blend” is about a few bartenders trying to recreate a mystical blend of spirits from rare and expensive casks of old Whisky.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
