Welcome to Douglas McGibbon & Co

Douglas McGibbon & Company is an independent, family owned company who pride ourselves on taking an old fashioned and artisan approach to our award winning Scotch Whiskies.

Established by founder Fred Douglas Laing (or FDL as he was commonly known in the industry) in 1947, Douglas McGibbon & Company is now in its third generation, with Fred Hamilton Laing (Fred Jr.) and his daughter, Cara Laing at the helm.

FDL affectionately named Douglas McGibbon & Company after his wife (Fred Jr’s mother), Morag Sarah Ross McGibbon. The McGibbon family has strong ties to the Isle of Islay; the southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is because of this family connection to such an ancient and spiritual land of Whisky that the Douglas McGibbon range of Scotch Whiskies carries themes around history, origin and heritage at its very heart.

We select only the finest family casks which have been lying untouched and protected in our cold, dark and damp Scottish warehouses for many decades.
