Based in Scotland, we are a small and established team of highly creative wine and spirits experts - whisky innovators, curators and explorers.
Classic, contemporary or bespoke, each GOLDFINCH cask is hand selected for the enjoyment of discerning enthusiasts, collectors and investors around the world and carries a clear provenance. Every bottle we release under our own brand or on your behalf is exquisitely packaged with beautiful, original artwork.
Why The Goldfinch?
The European Goldfinch – marked out by the vibrant splash of red on its head – makes its summer home in Scotland, stripping feathery down from our native thistles to line its nest. When winter falls, these distinctive little birds migrate to the south of Spain, settling close to the sherry bodegas that the whisky industry relies for its supply of richly seasoned casks.
Collectively known as a ‘charm’, and a prevalent symbol in art through the ages, the goldfinch represents prosperity, optimism and variety – values close to our heart and fundamental to our business.
Drawing on our 25 years in the industry, we aim to combine our own extensive experience with an innovative take on curating distinctive, intriguing and exclusive expressions.
