The Last Drop Distillers announces master blender

Scotch whisky’s Colin Scott is joining the team, bringing 50 years of industry expertise to the table

28 September 2020

The Last Drop Distillers, known for its collection of rare and remarkable spirits from around the world, has appointed Colin Scott as the company’s master blender, marking its move from curator to creator.

Since founding the company in 2008, The Last Drop Distillers has released only 18 limited editions across Scotch whisky, Cognac and Bourbon, comprising fewer than 9,000 bottles to date.

Using experience which spans half a century, Scott will select from the brand’s extensive library of maturing Scotch casks to create unique blends. The inaugural signature blend release from The Last Drop is set to be created by Scott for a launch in 2021.

Rebecca Jago, managing director of The Last Drop Distillers noted: “We are absolutely delighted that Colin Scott will be joining The Last Drop as master blender. One of the many attractions for both Colin and The Last Drop is that he will have the widest palette to paint from. We very much look forward to welcoming him to The Last Drop team.’’

Colin Scott said: ‘’The Last Drop is a family business, founded by two men I have the pleasure of knowing as friends and colleagues for many years. I have spent the majority of my career working and learning from family-owned brands and long may that continue. The Last Drop is very much a luxury brand in a very niche market. They have global reach, but have maintained their integrity and vision since they began, which is hugely important to me. This is a new chapter that I am very much looking forward to: carrying on the story that began with Tom and James some decades ago. As my much-missed friend Tom Jago said, “If you can’t have fun in the drinks industry, and in what you create, you can’t have fun anywhere!” Rebecca and the team do just that.’’
