The Whisky Chairmen

Success Story 28 October 2022

Region/Nation Scotland
Programme Start Up Loans

The Whisky Chairmen is a social enterprise based in Inverclyde, Scotland, which makes bespoke furniture from obsolete whisky barrels. Each piece is handcarved from a whisky barrel, some of which are over 100 years old when they are ‘retired’. Unique and tailored to each customer, The Whisky Chairmen takes ‘bespoke’ to a new level, being able to source barrels that held a customer’s favourite malt, from the year that they were born. In August 2018, The Whisky Chairmen received a Start Up Loan of £13,000 through delivery partner Transmit, which helped to provide the essential tooling, materials, rent and insurances needed to establish the business.
