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!

And our roots are still growing!

bellevue 1998


Distilled in Guadeloupe, this rum takes you on a trip into tropical paradise. Notes of mango, honey and mashed bananas combined with fresh leather, old books and some black olives welcome you. An oily mouthfeel, overripe pineapple and mango combined with a funky edge, seal the deal. After one sip, this beauty won’t let you go!

bas-armagnac 1976


1976 brought us this unique Bas-Armagnac. Sit and relax by the wood stove and get carried away by the perfect mix between maturity and vibrant flavours. Mango chutney, chocolade, leather and tobacco, cherry flavoured candy and some apricot pie give you a buffet of flavours and aromas. Lean back and enjoy this treasure.

old rhosdhu 1993


Our first single malt whisky as independent bottler. Imagine fresh tropical fruits and honeycomb with a floral edge that are accompanied by some good old farmy touches. All of this further assisted by a nicely balanced chalkiness and some vegetal influences too. Close your eyes and imagine you standing on top of Conic Hill. The finish is as beautiful as the view.
