Company Overview

The business is owned by Alan Mitchell and trades under the name straightfromthecask.co.uk. The business commenced trading on 16 April 2010. The concept came about through Alan's passion for all things whisky, particularly single malts. Alan's career history and qualifications are stated below. He has over 37 years experience in business at all levels and latterly his professional work took him into the world of Human Resources and People Development. This, coupled with an absolute passion for Malt Whisky, has led him to develop a business that links business management and people development with the whisky spirit !

This is explained in more detail under the Corporate Whisky Tasting section.

It is a unique offering and entirely bespoke to your business model. The straight from the cask business model will not just be linked to the corporate world. We will look to offer private tastings for private functions such as clubs,associations, even at your home. Whisky tours and whisky walks will also be developed to give a unique, personalised event in whisky country from the Isle of Syke to Speyside to the Lowlands. All these offerings can be accessed within the site which I hope you find informative and easy to navigate.

We also now have an online shop for you to purchase high quality single malts at cask strength. Go to "Online Sales" section to see what is available.

A "Malt Whisky Gallery" section is also available to view some whisky themed photos taken on Alan's travels which I hope you find interesting.
