The company was founded in 1992 by Brian Crook was previously export manager in a major distilleries in Scotland. The Vintage Malt Whisky Company sells single malts and pure malt (vatted malts) and a series of traffic "single cask" from different distilleries in Scotland. The brand is exported to over twenty countries around the world, and their flagship product, Finlaggan won a gold medal in a prestigious international competition of wines and liquors.
The company is very proud of it makes selections for its traffic jams. Each cask is tested by a panel of four experienced people, who decide whether whiskey deserves to be marketed under the name of the company. The result of this strict selection is a small number of annual traffic.
