Nc’Nean Organic Single Malt MasterClass

February 29 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Founded in 2013, Nc’nean is an independent, B Corp certified, fully organic whisky distillery on the west coast of Scotland. Its ethos of sustainable production is embedded in everything it does. Its bottles are made from 100% recycled glass and the distillery recycles or reuses 99.9% of its waste. In recognition of their support for the planet and its people, Nc’nean was awarded a staggeringly high B Corp score of 135.6, with major points being awarded in the environmental impact area.

Nc’nean uses longer mashing times, slower fermentation and experiments with unusual yeasts not commonly used within whisky distilling on its quest for new whisky flavours. Its liquid is matured on site in ex-bourbon, sherry and STR ex-red wine casks, along with many other smaller and more unique cask experiments. In 2020, Nc’nean released a small 1,320 bottle run which sold out in 36 hours and the charity auction of its first 10 bottles broke the world record for the price paid for a first release from a new distillery (£41,000 for Bottle #1). Since then, the distillery has continued to release batches of its core expression and has introduced further seasonal releases across the UK and Europe.

Join Phil Nickson, who is responsible for overseeing global sales for the brand for a MasterClass showcasing the single malts of Nc’Nean. Phil started his career in drinks behind-the-bar serving cocktails in his hometown of Leeds and then London. His passion for whisky started there but amplified when, in 2010, he started working for Morrison Bowmore Distillers, a subsidiary of Suntory Japan. Here he worked in various on-premise and export roles, ultimately taking on ownership of the UK and Scandinavian markets, just as Japanese whisky was starting to take hold. Phil then worked as Off-Trade Sales Director for a UK based importer of whiskies, Speciality Brands, where he oversaw the growth of brands including Nikka, Kavalan, Amrut and Port Askaig.
