Modern group created to build and operate Glasgow’s first distillery for over 100 years.
Demijohn, ‘the world’s first liquid deli,’ operates a small network of branches throughout the UK offering an assortment of spirits and condiments for customers to fill into their own bottles. Gin, infused vodka, whisky, oil, vinegar… if it’s in liquid form, Demijohn stocks it.
In the past Demijohn has offered Clynelish and Inchgower single malts direct from cask, as well as a 6-year-old blended Islay malt plus various whisky liqueurs.
The company was founded in 2004 by husband and wife team Angus and Frances Ferguson, who had been inspired by wine sharing parties while living abroad in Italy. The company opened its flagship branch in Edinburgh’s Old Town in 2004, and over the following decade further shops were established in Glasgow (July 2006), York (September 2009) and Oxford (October 2013).
Holding company overseeing the construction and operation of the Clydeside distillery in Glasgow.
The new addition to Glasgow’s distilling revival is a blend of tradition and originality.
