Douglas Laing & Co's Diamond Collection Celebrates 75 Years of Excellence

The family-owned Scotch Whisky business, Douglas Laing & Co., is commemorating the illustrious journey of its brand with the release of six of its most scarce and precious Single Casks, hand-selected from the family vaults, named “The Diamond Collection.”

Having just surpassed the 75th anniversary of exceptional Douglas Laing Whisky, the company wants to pay homage to its storied legacy while eagerly anticipating the next 75 years of delivering fine drams.

Established in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, a gentleman with a genuine love and serious passion for whisky, Douglas Laing & Co. has remained an independent, family-run business. Transitioning through three generations, the mantle has now been assumed by Cara, the granddaughter of the founder.

With her recent appointment as Managing Director, Cara brings forth a wealth of heritage, history, and expertise that has been instrumental in refining the Douglas Laing process and perfecting the creation of consistently extraordinary Whiskies.

This collection provides a unique opportunity for Whisky enthusiasts to experience the breadth of the family vaults and the unparalleled standard of quality with which Douglas Laing Whiskies are renowned.

Aged and refined in some of the finest Single Casks from Scotland’s most acclaimed and celebrated distilleries, “The Diamond Collection” consists of Speyside’s Finest, 55 Years Old, Port Dundas 45 Years Old, Macallan 35 Years Old, Blair Athol 30 Years Old, Cameronbridge 45 Years Old and an elusive Port Ellen 40 Years Old.

These exceptional bottlings have been sampled by renowned whisky expert & author Charles MacLean. Giving them his stamp of approval, he commented, “This is an exceptional Diamond Collection of six rare old Malt and Grain Scotch Whiskies – all Single Casks so extremely rare – selected by Fred Laing and his daughter, Cara, to mark the legacy of their family business, Douglas Laing & Co.

I was delighted to have been invited to assess and profile the whiskies with Fred and Cara in their new tasting room, and I can happily report their excellence!”

The same strive for perfection is reflected in Douglas Laing’s partnership with British Designer Richard Brendon, whose crystalware features within the sets.

Demonstrating the finest pairing of craftsmanship and design, the mouth-blown, hand-cut and intricate detail, along with the timeless design of their crystal, brings an element of the exceptional to every moment. A shared ethos of excellence and quality makes this partnership truly exquisite.

Cara Laing, Managing Director and third generation in the family business, said, “For the continued support we have had over the years, we wanted to celebrate our family legacy and give Whisky lovers a chance to experience the drams we deem to be the most exceptional in their offering.

“This is something I think we truly captured with “The Diamond Collection” – Single Cask Whiskies selected from deep within the Douglas Laing family vaults.

These latest editions reflect very much our focus and philosophy to release excellent Scotch Whisky at the peak of perfection, honouring everything this company and my family have always stood for. This collection really is the diamond in the crown that is Douglas Laing & Co.”
