Encompassing brewing, distillation, oak cask maturation, bulk shipping or bottling and labelling.

We offer contract manufacturing services to help new or emerging whisky businesses and craft brewers enter, and cost-effectively grow within, the rapidly evolving spirits industry. Before you acquire and/or commission your own brewing or distilling equipment, we offer contract manufacturing encompassing:

i) Design of rapidly maturing whisky in just 2-3 years versus the usual 8-10 years;
ii) Production of your first high quality batches of whisky at our world class production facility using Forsyth’s pot stills;
iii) On-site maturation; and
iv) Either bulk shipping or bottling and labelling.

Forsyth’s stills are used by most of the world’s greatest whisky makers including Macallan, Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Jamesons, Kavalan and by us here at the Victoria Caledonian Distillery. Our 1 tonne mash tun / 5,500L wash still capacity can provide you with up to 290,000 LPA per annum (670,000 bottles of whisky per annum).

You can have your own premium quality single malt, Irish-style pot still, rye or corn whiskies ready for market as your own stills are being ordered, or while you establish a market presence in anticipation of raising the necessary capital to finance your own distillery. This will allow you to immediately begin generating critical revenues and establish marketing and distribution channels, and/or commence tours & tastings of your own distillery, in advance of your own-distilled mature whisky release.

Working with the Victoria Caledonian Distillery will give you access to our world leading expertise. Our ex-DIAGEO Master Distiller Mike Nicolson has worked in over 18 distilleries during his career and produces an unrivaled, consistently high quality spirit. We also proudly continue the legacy of the legendary maturation expert Dr. Jim Swan, responsible for award winning whiskies such as the Kavalan Vinho Barrique, which at only four years old won the World Whisky Awards 2015 World’s Best Single Malt Whisky. Finally, our President and founder, Graeme Macaloney, has over a decade of experience in contract fermentation manufacturing for clients spanning North America, Europe and Australasia. This expertise allows us to produce exceptional whiskies or craft beers while vastly reducing your time to market.
