"Mark set Robbo quite a challenge on this one. Create a whisky that tastes like two of his existing favourites, Macallan Gran Reserva and Exceptional Single Cask 1 (ironically, Robbo's babies from his previous job). It took several versions, but No. 8 finally cracked it, giving a bold, intense flavour, packed full of Rich Spiciness." While Jon and Mark had drunk plenty and were passionate about the water of life, David ?Robbo? Robertson the Master Distiller at The Macallan actually made the stuff. So they got chatting?as you do?and nine months later a new company was born, the Easy Drinking Whisky Company. Led by Robbo, calling on his distinguished whisky expertise, the three guys wanted to make a whisky they?d adore. But they didn?t want it to be all haggis and heather clichés. Drinking whisky should be about fun, so their whisky had to be funky, fabulous, flavoursome and appeal to them - and importantly their friends.
