Bacardi's Scotch whisky operation.
Classic Whisky Guild Profile
The Classic Whisky Guild is the independent bottling name for wine merchant and wholesaler The Drinks Guild, based in Hampshire, England. The company is quite low-key in the whisky world, although it has released some excellent, and now quite rare, bottlings.

The company was incorporated in April 1998 and continues to operate to this day, although the majority of its whisky bottlings were releases from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.
The Imperial distillery made way for Chivas Brothers’ modern yet historically-sympathetic Dalmunach.
Borders-based independent bottler owned and managed by industry veteran David Stirk.
Britain’s largest wine merchant also bottles whiskies under the Old Harry and First Cask labels.
