Whigham Fergusson History

Established in the Scottish west coast port of Ayr during 1766, the company was initially Alexander Oliphant & Co, and later traded as Whigham, Ferguson, Cuningham & Co Ltd. It has been known by its current name since 1968, when it entered separate ownership from Whighams of Ayr Ltd, with which it shared a common heritage, having latterly been an Edinburgh branch of its Ayr parent.  From its inception, the firm was principally focused on trading with Europe, and sent out its initial overseas shipment to New York during its first year of business.

Whigham Fergusson Ltd has been associated with John E Fells Ltd since 1981, and it once boasted a respected range of blended whiskies, which included Whigham’s No.1, Whigham’s No.10 eight-year-old, and Whigham’s 12-year-old vatted malt.
