Independent Bottler

‘Don’t live by quantity, live by quality’

The Roots is an independent bottler of the finer spirits such as whisky, rum, cognac and armagnac. In a world where quantity reigns supreme, we go back to the roots. Never ever a compromise will be made in the search for quality. The satisfaction of bottling a beautiful spirit is what it’s all about.

If It’s not love at first sight, it won’t carry ‘The Roots’ label. Everything is carefully chosen with a lot of passion and dedication. We also go for our spirits in their purest form such as natural color, unchillfiltered and preferably bottled at cask strength. You won’t be disappointed, that’s a promise!

ledaig 2007


On the Isle of Mull, over 15 years ago, a cask was filled with a liquid that gives us notes of butterscotch, lit cigar, sweet and dirty peat smoke, pecans and rubber. The balance between the cask and the spirit is so well integrated that it will take you to paradise. Some tropical fruits are making their way in the background. Waves crashing in on the rocky shore, only to calm down when the sunlight slowly fades.

Where ancient souls dwell around the distillery, an ancient spirit stopped sharing with its angels after 37 years. It took a lot of time for this liquid to develop to the state it is in today, so give this one some time to open up and develop. Patience is the key to unlock beautiful fresh and fruity aromas, honey and pink grapefruit and some peach and beeswax. This oldie from 1985 will bring peace to the restless.

secret highland 1978


In September 1978 there was a spirit dripping from a still somewhere in the Scottish Highlands, before being taken to a refill sherry butt, only to remain untouched for over 42 years.

A golden liquid that takes you back in time and fills the room with aromas of tropical fruits, beeswax, leather and tobacco leaves. A liquid time capsule.
