With the aim of creating a selection of Scottish malt whiskey products in the best distilleries on the island, in 1992, Mr. Brian Crook founded the "The Vintage Malt Whiskey Company" - VMWC, whereby all the world's importers can easily find the most prestigious Scottish distillers, in order to redistribute them for retail. While over a century ago there were more than 120 distilleries in Scotland, most of them family-run, at present, only 17 or 18 distilleries still produce malt whiskey following traditional processes, and these are very family-owned. The remaining distilleries are, in fact, controlled by multinational companies. In this scenario, the VMWC takes on the role of being the guarantor of small family-run distilleries, which produce, if desired, the most original and authentic Scots Whiskeys. This approach has led the VMWC to expand its market by exporting up to one million and two hundred thousand Whiskey bottles in 20 countries and making the world's rarest and most sought-after Scottish whiskey known.
