Dràm Mòr is an independent bottler specialising in single cask whisky and single barrel rum. They were founded in 2019 by husband and wife team Kenny and Viktorija Macdonald. Originally the company started as an export agency for Scottish whiskies. But, as demand for independent, high-quality spirits increased, they decided the explore the world of independent bottlings.

They will taste their spirits and find the cask that best reflects the potential of that spirit. They source a range of different casks to age their spirits in, sherry casks, ports, dessert wines, red wines, rum, cognac and the finest ex-bourbon.
Introducing the place
Dràm Mòr originates from the once highly influential town of Dumbarton, Scotland. This town rests in the shadow of its iconic Rock, Dumbarton’s medieval Castle. It used to be the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde. The region has a strong whisky legacy with Ballantine’s and Pernod Ricard’s Chivas. Dràm Mòr is bringing back the historic whisky heritage to Dumbarton and starting a new chapter for the industry in this prominent location.
